For the entry of Texas Tech University’s New Sports Performance Center. The technique of creating form from stainless steel slices held apart with added “motion lines”, gives the illusion of a woman athlete running as you pass by and each figure sequentially disappears. 11’ x 21’ x 5.5’ on 6’ pedestal. Day and night shots, lighted by LED's.
The sculpture and plinth designs were an integral part of the landscape architectural planning for the new Center's plaza.
This project was a collaboration between Simon Donovan LLC, Ben Olmstead, Rice Engineering and Industrial Stainless International.
