Public art award for the Microsoft Silicon Valley Campus constructed of concrete, pyrex glass, dichroic glass, stainless steel and water. 362 pyrex glass rods, each capped with a dichroic glass lens, penetrate a 15" thick concrete wall. Water cascades from the top of the wall over the glass rods creating a meditative field of rumbling water. As the sun tracks across the sky, a color shift from yellow to aqua blue occurs at the ends of the glass rods. The hour of this transformation changes throughout the year.
