Inspired by aboriginal legend and lore, The Raven is a ceiling suspended art piece that reflects both natural and artificial light year round.
With The Raven, Michael’s initial goal was to capitalize on the sunshine that Alberta’s prairies are famous for. The location of sunlight throughout the day and year-round informed the sculpture’s shape and orientation. Made from 36 triangulated six-foot-long holographically-treated pieces, the 3,500 pound sculpture will be viewable from the ground level, first floor and the interstitial walkway. It will diffract, transmit, and reflect rainbows upon itself and its surroundings.
