Microsoft Silicon Valley Campus
Public Art
Mountain View, CA
14' x 36' x 20'

Public art award for the Microsoft Silicon Valley Campus constructed of concrete, pyrex glass, dichroic glass, stainless steel, and water. 362 Pyrex glass rods, each capped with a dichroic lens, penetrate a 15″ thick concrete wall. Water cascades from the top of the wall over the glass rods, creating a meditative field of rumbling water. As the sun tracks across the sky, a color shift from yellow to aqua-blue occurs at the ends of the glass rods. The hour of this transformation changes throughout the year.

Selected for the permanent Library Collection at the Corning Museum of Glass – https://info.cmog.org/publication/new-glass-review-26
