Brief Description

Request for qualifications from interested artists or artist teams to create sitespecific artwork(s) for the new Weber State Noorda Engineering, Applied Science & Technology Building in Ogden, UT. A successful proposal would convey and/or demonstrate principles of engineering and/or science and might also have a sustainability component, either in function or content. Examples might include basic machines (pulleys, incline plane, gears, etc.), kinetic work, demonstrations of scientific principles (ie., vacuum tubes demonstrating gravity or a real-time digital representation of how the building functions), work which uses the building’s form and or site in a meaningful way, interactive work with science or engineering content, etc. The artwork proposed may be singular or consist of multiple works which function together. Proposed work should reflect and compliment the engineering and science teaching and research mission of the building and those who use it.
