Antelope Valley Reflecting Wall

  • Type Environment
  • Location Lincoln, Nebraska
  • Date 2008

In collaboration with artists Leslie Iwai and Jamie Burmeister and managed by the Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, we have proposed to transform an 18′ tall by 1000′ long retaining wall that is part of the Antelope Valley flood control project in the Lincoln. The design incorporates brushed stainless steel tiles arranged in an aperiodic Penrose tiling pattern. As the pattern never repeats, the long wall will subtly change and shift when viewed by the city’s residents from different positions in different light conditions. Fabric cast “Quasiboulders” tune the hydrology of the site and provide platforms for social interaction and spontaneous performance.
