Life As We Know It


Permanent Installation

This illuminated painting, 30 ft. wide x 12 ft. high on eight layers of glass, greets visitors to the new Institute for Science & Technology at Chapman University in Orange, California near Los Angeles. Using experimental fabrication and lighting technologies, the two-sided, semi-translucent sculptural painting is astronomically synced to the sunrise and rotates through five different light settings. The 1,000+ daily viewers are brought into an intimate relationship with the biological structure of our oneness and the interconnectedness of all life.
