Enter

The Weaving Wall (unrealized - artist's concept image above) is part of a public art master plan for a contemporary cybercenter at the edge of the historic downtown of Albany, New York. This architectural scale illusionist weaving was designed to anchor a public plaza. The artist collaborated with textile artist John Garrett on the design. The work depicts materials first traded on this site in the 18th century. Glass panels in the weaving are windows onto a conference center staircase. Sunlight passing through them projects light, color and text onto interior walls and enliven the park at night. The work was part the urban center's $1M public art program, which included a plaza with an art glass tower and a seventeen story holographic glass light shaft integrated into the signature building's tower.
