 Pierce College, Fort Steillacoom, WA   2019                                                                                (In progress; select preliminary models shown.) A suspended 28′ l x 7′ d sculpture will activate a four-story stairwell. A series of beautifully crafted, intricately patterned wooden sculptures descend in an undulating column from the ceiling on the fourth floor to the area above the seating area on the first floor. Conceived of as an interactive experience, the sculpture embodies the journey students take at Pierce College: traversing the staircase, the artwork animates, creating myriad compositions that shift and change, just as student’s perspectives evolve and grow as they pursue their education. The diversity of perspectives evoke the spectrum of cultures, ideas, and viewpoints that thrive at Pierce College.
