A back-lit, shingled light wall composed of over 300 acrylic panels. Each panel has one corner lifted, as if a page turning in a book. Multiplied across the 40 foot wall, this slight move imbues the wall with a depth and complexity. Upon entering the courtyard the wall feels whole yet rippled. Moving to the opposite end and looking back towards the entry, the wall seems to expand and dissolve as each panel opens a view to the lighting strips contained within.
