Swimming Under the Tree echoes the atmosphere of the recreation center and creates an interaction of shape, color, and light. The color elements create unique visual movements that at encourage imagination and uplift the spirit.


Integration into the space was very important. Working with contractors and designers to install the work was an invigorating challenge that required flexibility, but ended in the success of my original vision for the space.


The installation was a success and overall a good experience. Working closely with the designers, architects, and contractors the project was installed efficiently and on time.
