Proposal for library

model1.jpgOnce again, I’ve made the final three on a Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission project. This one is for a library in Elk Grove, just South of Sac, that has yet to break ground. The space will be very wonderful, as it functions as a ventilation shaft for the LEED building. This was a terrific opportunity to create an entire installation, but sadly, our proposal wasn’t chosen. Rachel created the rendering in the model which stands 36″ high. The concept references migration, with the monarch butterfly as a metaphor for the migration of humans and animals. Further, the concept of the interaction of languages is a second layer in the idea. Perhaps I’ll be able to find another space for this piece.
