$20,500 commission; Florida Art in Public Places Program; Florida State University, Student Services Building; Tallahassee, Florida; The forms of this sculpture began as purely abstract forms, but as I worked with clay models I began to see them as dancing figures. I let that idea guide me to the final forms. I thought about Native American line dances as I designed. The patterns carved into the surfaces are derived from the textile patterns used by the Seminoles (FSU's mascot).
