LIGHT FLIGHT

2008

Hilton Bayfront Hotel, San Diego, California

The 2 artworks for the back lit lantern wall of the hotel lobby areas are each 12' x 14' in size. Abstracted from images of water birds in flight, these 2 artworks are made from a combination of an optical diffracting panel and translucent image film. The panels diffuse and shift the light and image from the back as well as catching light from the front, creating a visually compelling work that change as one walks by and in different light conditions.
