Gracing the Life Sciences Building exterior, the glass sculpture is made up of one panel with painted imagery, four interconnected solar panels and an interior layer of light-emitting diodes (LEDs). Text is from a poem by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe about gingko biloba trees interwoven with images of the tree’s leaves.

SARAH HALL, RCA: “I wanted to make a connection to the gingko trees on campus, explore the golden section, look at languages overlapping with images and make solar look beautiful.”
