This 5' x 5' work relies on an aluminum support while the surface is covered with international postage stamps. As a wall sculpture, it stands off the wall 2.5″.
The client, an international industrial gas manufacturer, looks to five molecules as the basis of their past success and the key to their future. Placed in a research facility, "Nitrogen" illuminates the energy of the nitrogen molecule as it flows through space inspiring the research staff.
As an artist, I conduct significant research about a new client. My goal is to tell the client's story in the simplest, most potent way possible. "Nitrogen" and three other works of the series, boil down the client's success to its most essential element. This story can be told by any employee.
