Optical Artifact
2006
99" x 126"
Stainless Steel, Painted Glass

Millennium Broadway Hotel, Manhattan, NY. Suspended, cabled and curved cast glass panels in custom compositional texture with metallic holographic color shifting paints. ‘Optical Artifact’ explores the intersection of past and future. Primeval silica sand, organic textures drawn from the natural environment, and glass roughly torn at the edges, collide with broad areas of high-tech color shifting transparent, translucent and opaque paints to produce an amazing collage of textures and colors that move and fascinate the viewer.
