In celebration of 100 Years of Music at Grace Cathedral, Ms. Patterson was Grace Cathedral’s 2013 Artist in Residence. Ms. Patterson’s work engages audiences through a synthesis of art and music, light and sound, space and self. Seeing the Voice was a yearlong exploration of this compelling synthesis of the spirit with our five traditional senses. She envisioned a series of light pathways, connecting heaven and earth, manifest as ribbons. The ribbons carry our prayers, dreams and wishes skyward, and, in turn, grace streams down the ribbons to us.


This installation was added to over time, and in this iteration the light show was added with corresponding music.
