This work is a two part sculptural element with curved glass surfaces that transmit and reflect sunlight deep into the atrium. In the winter months the upper, more vertical, warm-colored glass panel reach up to intercept the rays from a sun that is low in the sky and a mirrored surface recessed and beneath the glass directs this sunlight downward and even onto the south wall. The lower, more horizontal, cool-colored glass panel is emphasized during summer. As the sunlight filters through, it projects colored shapes on the main floor and the north wall. Because the atrium is long, the artist repeated the sculptural form three times. The Light Sculptures at each end twist and reach toward the atrium bridges, where their filtered sunlight dapples the bridges and those using them with exciting, changing color.
