IN PROGRESS

 

FREQUENCIES

1050 Page Mill Road, Palo Alto, CA

Installation scheduled for 2019

Frequencies is a visual tribute to unseen patterns that shape our daily lives. The artwork references wave patterns to visualize the pervasive, but largely unseen, presence of electromagnetic frequencies. Five large freestanding sculptures are rendered in aluminum and create additional visual layers to complement the site’s innovative architecture. Natural light plays on the surfaces of these elements during the day. At night, integrated lighting illuminates the sculptures from within. Barbara Grygutis selected green light for the work to evoke balance, harmony, and growth. Frequencies is envisioned as integral to the landscape of the site as well as to the mission of the place.

A PATH FOR WATER

6th & Butler Greenspace, Phoenix, AZ

Completion scheduled for 2019

Conceptually, the sculpture is the funnel through which the water is collected for the site. The sculpture was developed for the tip of the site.  The ribbon style walkway, commencing at the top of the sculpture, makes its way down the sculpture, and becomes the walkway, which ends at the fence. My approach to creating a work of art for the 6th and Butler site is to look at the entire site as the canvas for the artwork. Most importantly, the landscape development is integral to the sculptural elements. The entire site will ultimately be the work of art.

DIALOGUE

University of Minnesota Health Sciences Learning Center, Minneapolis, MN, USA.

This work of art for the University of Minnesota’s new Health Sciences Learning Center is designed to emphasize and highlight an important human interaction feature necessary for public health - the ability to listen - and the ability to dialogue. Dialogue transcends our differences to find common ground. DIALOGUE is composed with two monumental sculptures with integrated lighting. The shape of each sculpture is a generalized, generic human head and does not convey gender or race— it is simply human. Each sculptural head is rendered in a different manner. One is more transparent, while the other less transparent, but more complex in its system of transparency.
