Item Details
"Metamorphosis," corrugated plastic, found ads, vinyl & lights, 192" x 168" x 82". Installation shots for the Husky Fest at University of Washington Red Square, Seattle, WA last April 19 - 21, 2012. This installation was designed for the University of Washington 150th anniversary festival as a feature artwork and a vibrant backdrop for music performances. The constantly changing natural light bounces off the fractured surface, while a soft glow emanates from within the crystal forms, giving these artificial materials a sense of life, warmth, and growth.
