A kind of sketch in light, Landscape (Triptych) presents the 2012 AIANY Presidential Theme selected by Joseph J. Aliotta, "Future Now," in the ephemeral abstract. An installation created for the New York Center for Architecture's double-height space, the project utilizes technical rope and energy-efficient electroluminescent wire in tension to create a dynamic interplay of light and space. The Center’s existing window frames work to define a divided canvas through which an abstract landscape is represented.
This project was the winning entry to an invited competition among the winners of 2012 AIA New Practices New York .
