Description:
<p>Liquid Pixels comprises six monumental vertical panels (42&#39; x 25&#39;) to which 450,000 one-inch diameter brushed stainless steel disks, attached to stainless steel pins, have been affixed. The disks are mounted on 12&quot; x 12&quot; plastic backing panels in increments of 100. The large panels are situated on two sides of a 24-story office building in the Rosslyn section of Arlington, Virginia, directly across the Potomac River from the Georgetown area of Washington, D.C. The work responds kinetically to the wind and light, mimicking the flow of air currents and light conditions across its surface, producing an effect akin to the silvery surface of a moving fish or of flowing water.</p>
