Falling Light "in progress"
Also currently installed in the Pearl District: The RACC
presents an installation by Scott Sonniksen. Falling Light
, which is incorporated into the structure of the MachineWorks building, is constructed of concrete blocks coated with colored epoxy glaze, installed in such a way that it creates a surface that subtly reflects light. The installation looks at the interplay of light created by dense downtown building, and the use of red is "a nod to the many historic brick buildings that once populated this district."
Downtown installation • Through July 25
MachineWorks • 1455 NW Northrup
