Arcs of glowing crimson glass are curated into elegant overlapping waves in this wall sculpture by John Paul Robinson. The design of the sculpture suspended from three points is enhanced by warm shadows cast by light filtering through the glass. The intersection of art, science and myth and the human relationship with the universe are themes in Robinson's work. In this piece, the artist highlights the dual and complex nature of light as both particle and wave. In physics, the wave nature of light is a "probability wave" representing the probability of an observer measuring a particle at a given place and time. Detailed installation instructions are included with this sculpture.
