Watch this video to get a closer look at Gappa’s inspiration and process on installation at the Center for BrainHealth, a part of The University of Texas at Dallas.
Fifty-feet wide by forty-feet long, and weighing an impressive 5,300 pounds, the intricate installation of glass and steel consists of 175 LED-illuminated glass spires and 1,050 hand-blown glass spheres.
Each five-and-a-half-foot spire is individually illuminated, and when programmed, slowly pulsates an array of colors across the entire piece, similar to the electric impulses passed from one nerve cell to another.
As the focal point of the research institute’s multi-purpose room, “Introspection” will serve as a visual reminder of the institution’s commitment to enhancing, protecting, and restoring brain health across the lifespan.
The possibilities are endless with glass installations. Make a bold statement with our custom art glass!
All custom glass pieces can vary in shape and color when they are created due to the nature of hand-blown and sculpted art glass.
