Wichita Art Museum Pulse Field - Installation Begins June 23

After several months of development, Pulse Field, a permanent art installation that I designed for the Wichita Art Museum, begins to take form.  Composed of 120 solar powered luminaires that are mounted on stems ranging from 8' to 16' tall, Pulse Field establishes a fixed datum over a 200' long gently sloping berm.  This implied ceiling plane establishes a reference point against the contoured landscape aiding the viewer's ability to more keenly recognize topographical change.  The stem mounted luminaires slowly pulse  and the stems gently sway in the breeze, further animating the tension between technology and nature.   Landscape Architect: Confluence, Art Fabricator: DuraComm Lighting, Installer: Suburban Landscape Management.
