MEMORIAL TO DECEASED STUDENTS
Location: St. Paul, MN
Client: University of St. Thomas
Collaborator: Experience Glass
Four stone panels intersect to form a cruciform, symbolizing the earth and the corporeal body. In contradistinction, glass discs inset into the stone panels evoke an ephemeral lightness with their translucency. Their circular form symbolizes the heart and the eternal soul. Both loss and renewal are made visible through this void that captures light. The gradient of materials—from rough to smooth—creates a sense of revealing.
