The Music of Light
Rotating, Shaped Acrylic Prisms, Polished Aluminum Arcs, Reflected Light
46’ x 96’ x 8’ 2004
The Music Center at Strathmore, North Bethesda, Maryland. Awarded by national
competition, the permanent installation suspends 4 stories over a grand
stairway and spans over 96ft. Strathmore is home to the Baltimore Symphony,
the National Philharmonic, City Dance Ensemble and Levine School of Music.
After creating many
concept drawings of this space, I realized that the artwork suspending
within needs to reflect its environment without imposing upon it. I sincerely
believe that the prisms subtly echo the multi-colored, complex interior
design of their surroundings. My gracefully shaped forms are abstract
and represent music itself without being a literal representation.
