This sculpture is inspired by Hermes’ ability to tether worlds together as suggested by the two, winged vortices folding into themselves presenting a self awareness with its participants physical or digital reflection.
Caducean is a thirty-three foot, stainless steel sculpture sits inside of a round seating platform. As people approach this winged pillar of light, proximity sensors trigger custom programs that control the LEDs spiraling within the form. This light grows warm in color as people approach and cools when they are passing, causing delayed ripples of light to be moving along the wingtips whenever people are present. The 13+ person seating area is also independently illuminated and intelligently connected to the rest of the form. The light from the underside of this seating illuminates peoples’ feet within twenty feet of the sculpture easing peoples approach.
