Description

This sculpture was commissioned for this location, and its theme was inspired by the bio-tech company occupying the offices inside. It's made from 1,000 pieces of stainless steel with the intention of creating the feel of flowing water.

The artist said, “I had the idea of using multiple pieces to construct it, which kind of worked into the biotech theme… I was imagining the sculpture moving around and landing somewhere.”

The piece's public art advisor, Leah Levy said, "There is a sense that Shawn Smith's work that deals With pixelation is very contemporary and hooks into the nature of biotech."
