SEAGRASS
2011

Aluminum, Light

Ocean Boulevard, Long Beach, California. Fabricated Aluminum, Integrated Lighting. Sited in the median of Ocean Boulevard, across from the Long Beach County Courthouse, the luminous iconic sculpture highlights the importance and beauty of ocean life to metropolitan Long Beach. Designed as a single repetitive motif inspired by the motion of sea grass as it ebbs and flows in the underwater currents, SEAGRASS is comprised of three light-infused sculptural elements. At dusk, inner LED lighting creates a soft glow and the texture of the surface of the sculptures creates a shimmering appearance of motion. Commissioned by Arts Council for Long Beach, CA.
