“visitors experience constantly-changing reflections from the building that evolve both ‘sundial for spatial echoes’ and the interior space in varied shades and colorings. The work recalls forms found in chemistry, biology, physics, and cosmos, building upon the symbiotic relationship between spaces, places, objects and ideas. these aesthetic and experiential sources encapsulate the feeling of the interdependencies of the system as a whole — making small changes in one string, for example, reverberates through the entire composition of the piece.”
