Lewis Integrative Sciences Building 

A major goal of this artwork was to create a sculpture that responds to the unique atrium space and its undulating boundaries in the Lewis Sciences Building. The monumental work not only connects several floors throughout the Lewis Building, but it also represents the connective behavior of molecular bonds. Not only can several disciplines relate to the network formation, but each floor of the Lewis Building will interact with the work independently. The artwork’s branching pattern and expansiveness draw curiosity from inside and outside the building. The final form is drawn from studying the information and communication networks in varying forms of life, such as neurons, mycelia, or the roots of a tree.
