Overview

One Frost is the operations center for Frost Bank. This work is part of a large collection on 4 floors of their new
building.
Time is Money is an analog timekeeping device displaying hours, minutes and seconds. The view infers the time from
the relationship of the “hands” to unmoving index marks, just like on a standard round clock. Hours on the left.
Minutes on the right. Seconds and index marks occupy the middle 3 stacks.

Goals

Some of the goals were: creating a pleasant workspace for Frost employees, building a beautiful and functional piece of art, maintaining the connection between the purpose of the space with the theme of the artwork.

Process

An art consultant contacted the artist to pitch an idea to the client. Once the design was approved, the construction crew integrated the structure for the piece into the building, in terms of structural, mechanical, and electrical engineering.
