A Million Flecks of Light

A Million Flecks of Light

Hand-cut reflective mylar, fencing
Art on the Atlanta Beltline, Ponce City Market
Atlanta, Georgia
300 feet x 4 feet
2013

Fluttering in response to the movement of passing pedestrians and cyclists, this shimmering sculpture is activated by the city's urban flow. An undulating mirage of reflective color creates visual perspective, inviting viewers to look closer and to reconsider the function of the fence. Created from thousands of hand-cut strips of mylar, each hand-tied to the fencing, the sheer magnitude of shimmering strands becomes an impressive illusion.
