Glass Forest is inspired by the artist’s interest in the projection and transmission of light and pattern and the desire to create a place of quiet contemplation on this corporate campus. The landscape plan of the site provided inspiration for the creation of a small stand of abstracted trees that create patterned light on the ground. When the viewer looks through the glass, leaves and branches above are magnified and distorted in a magical style.
