Power of Pop
Power of Pop is located in the Oklahoma Historical Society's new museum, OKPOP, that shares the state’s pop culture artifacts and collections. The sculpture draws its inspiration and color palette from comic books and concert posters. Thousands of handmade glass spheres evoke the superimposed ink dots that the Ben-Day printing process employed to create color images in vintage comic books. The overall shape is a multi-directional crossroads of culture suspended in the atrium where it is visible from outside the building and from many points within. Computer-controlled LED lighting within the glass spheres creates animated sequences of light moving through the sculpture and radiating outwards like explosions of pop culture.
