Luminous Trails













  Luminous Trails 2019    











The form of this sculpture takes the meandering shape of the Boone River and transforms it into a stylized functional bench made from stainless steel that emits light.  Rising out of river there are columns that support precision cut stainless steel screens that reference a canopy of trees.  This metal canopy is actually the street grid for Webster City, IA.  A solar panel installed nearby offsets the energy used in the production and daily operation of this light sculpture.

Dimensions: 14ft L x 7ft W x 9.5ft H
