University of Utah Health Sciences Building, 30 South 2000 East, Salt Lake City, Utah, 84112
Date:  2005
Placement:  universities and colleges
Artwork Type:  sculpture (visual work)
Material:  glass (material), LEDs
Description:  This multi-part sculpture reflects the ever-changing environment of the facility. Four floors of the building contain one of these slumped glass sculptures suspended from the ceiling visible to the outside. Each sculpture is internally lit with LEDs that cycle through a choreographed array of light, thereby transforming as day turns to night, paralleling the lives of the academic community occupying the building 24 hours a day. The light show for each sculpture is unique and independent from each other but periodically the lights will synchronize to connect all of the floors into the illusion of one sculpture.
