Overview

Located in downtown Atlanta, Georgia — a series of layered aluminum ribbons interact with a field of points located throughout this exterior wall, creating a collection of interconnected nodes, hubs and conduits. The resulting composition is expressive of gestalt principles, or the human compulsion to find order in disorder by perceiving a series of individual elements as a whole. Named after the prehistoric supercontinent of Pangaea, this large-scale artwork is a collection of autonomous ‘islands’ that assemble into a singular, 3-story composition.
