ASCENSION ground metal art by A.D. Cook


2012, 24″ x 48″, ground metal art diptych — stainless steel panels with hand-scribed orbs

Harmony and Balance

ASCENSION reveals dynamic motion with its interactive grinds and holographic scribed lines. This stainless steel original artwork changes appearance throughout the day as the light changes from morning to dusk, and then from natural light to interior lighting by night. Two individual orbs, each meticulously hand-scribed into the metal, create a three-dimensional illusion that dances as light dances across the steel.
