LAMINALIGHT

LOCATION: SAM GARY BRANCH LIBRARY

ARTIST: STEVEN APPLETON (LOS ANGELES, CA)

INSTALLED: 2012

From sunrise to sunset, the daylight harvesting robot on the library rooftop tracks the changing path of the sun across the sky. The harvester captures a slice of strong sunlight. Mirrors then bounce concentrated light down a tube, where the LaminaLight sculpture softens the light with its cloud-like forms. Sculptural lamps also interact with the changing light levels.

This artwork is part of the public art collection of the City and County of Denver. It’s also on display in the Sam Gary Branch Library and managed by Arts and Venues Denver.
