Space Rainbow

Item details

SPACE RAINBOW. 17' x 6' diameter suspended 15' in the air. Wood and Paint. It is created in collaboration with Casey Reed Johnson for a client in Los Angeles. The inspiration for this piece came from our desire to create a visual representation of sound, or a fleeting moment; to create a sort of monument to something that exists only for a second. Taking cues from the architecture with its high ceilings, multiple vantage points, and many windows that invite the outside in, we were reminded of the expansive nature of space. Our "fleeting moment" became the visual depiction of a sound wave from a rocket ship hurtling through space. We wanted to celebrate and highlight the atrium where the sculpture would hang, so we chose a bright color palette for this piece - inspired by the use of color Enrique has skillfully and thoughtfully incorporated throughout the home. When people look at our "Space Rainbow," we hope they think of a vibrant moment frozen in time; an energy captured.
