2SQUARED is a pair of two 50′ tall obelisks made out of square steel tubing and 2000 cast polyurethane cubes with inset full-color LEDs. Each cube is geometrically arranged to create a 40′ canopy that provides shade by day and light by night.
The LED programming focuses on big color fades in bold hues, jaded fractal transformations, and patterns that change based on sensory input and interactive controls. The two obelisks interact with each other, displaying sequences and patterns in a paired visual harmony.
This work is an abstracted organic form, bold and rigid, with mathematical aesthetics.
