This vibrant sculptural collage, featuring a star form constructed from a bent I-beam, a cast aluminum redwood branch and fluorescent lights, establishes a strong focal point for passengers as they traverse the corridor. The star shape changes from every viewpoint, while the silver branch acts as an anchor in space, transfixing the kinetic form. Amber, violet, and red fluorescent lamps project light rays that radiate out from the sculpture.
