Resoundpublic art

Resound is an 8-metre multi-layered wall work commissioned by TELUS that was completed for their headquarters in downtown Vancouver. The piece uses cut copper laminated to acrylic to form the top layer. The copper and acrylic layer “float” off of a laser cut walnut layer. The imagery in this piece is comprised of a coniferous tree line reflected across a body of water. The overall shape alludes to a sound wave and these two layers joined together, suggest voices in a conversation. Patterns of Morse code, tree rings and leaf veins were incorporated to symbolize not only the history of telecommunications, but also the personal connections fostered through its utilization. This piece incorporates a personal dimension as both of my grandfathers were employed in telecommunications during and after WWII.
