The Lunar Portal, 2022-23

A 10-foot-tall acrylic and stainless steel permanent public art installation inspired by early Amerindian and African civilizations who formed lunar knowledge systems around the Moon’s cycle to build thriving societies. This multi-part installation features a custom-built LED lighting system programmed to follow our 29 1/2-day Moon cycle and illuminate the pedestrian pathways in the plaza. The Lunar Portal is currently on view at the UPMC Mercy Pavilion Plaza in Pittsburgh, PA.
