This plaza sculpture creates a visual anchor for the 4th District Courthouse plaza which is directly across from the Provo Convention center. The computer controlled color changing lighting effects create a dynamic environment especially after dark.
My main aesthetic objective was to provide a curvilinear sculpture to provide contrast to the building mass. The courthouse reflects a traditional architectural gravitas and I wanted to counter with a light and non traditional sculpture reflecting a more contemporary theme.
I worked with the court staff and architect to develop the exact siting and lighting environment
