Stainless Steel, Dichroic Glass | 16'H x 12'W x 4'D


The goal for this project was to enliven and enhance the experience of pedestrians and drivers in this beautiful waterfront neighborhood. O Wave is a circular sculpture with curves that evoke an ocean wave turning in on its self. The undulating lines of the work also echo surrounding architecture, while the glass elements simultaneously transmit and reflect light. Reflective surfaces capture the ambient activity of trees, sky and passersby enabling the fixed work to take on distinctively animated characteristics.
