The team journeyed up to Phoenix to deliver & install the finished Sprouts piece. We sincerely hope that our work creates a welcoming and uplifting experience for all of those who visit Phoenix Children’s Hospital, one of the best children’s hospitals in the country.
Sprouts is a series of perforated, curvilinear sculptures that reference the form of a plant shoot or sprout, but at a monumental scale. The field of sculptures creates an abstract yet referential environment that invites people to interact with the piece by moving in and around it. Sprouts’ gently curving forms create a calm serene environment that can be explored without eliciting a strong sense of play. The subtle perforation is made up of different-sized circles, rotated and skewed slightly to provide the illusion of small water droplets hitting the surfaces. Overall, visitors to the piece are immersed in a strange yet wondrous world that invites them to use their imagination.
Stay tuned for our project, Flowers, which is also being installed inside the hospital at the same time.
