Known for reflective, large-scale sculptural installations of acrylic and steel, Kirsten Berg was commissioned to create a sculpture. According to her artist statement, Berg uses her art to shift perspective into a broader view, by revealing the illusion of boundary between viewer and object, personal and collective.

As is the first step of all our projects, we discussed the feasibility of different options and created detailed drawings to inform the fabrication.

The steel was coated with iridescent powder that comes alive in outdoor environments.

As with all of our projects, each element was prefabricated in our shop. We provided detailed construction documents so that (almost) anyone would be able to put together this unique structure.

Materials Used: Thin Gauge Mild Steel Sheets and Iridescent Powder Coating


She reached out to us with a schematic drawing of metal butterfly. She had a vision of what she wanted to create, but no idea how to make it happen.
