Description:

Four “Sculptural Light Reflectors” made of translucent white silicone fabric, fill the central skylights and diffuse sunlight, projecting a dappled play of light into the space. Each canoe-shaped sculpture is edged with a rainbow-colored corona of dichroic glass and is approximately 30’ x 180’. Their design was inspired by the construction of the Wright Brothers’ first airplane, but is also reminiscent of dirigibles, or boats.
