Cross-Section of a Forest in the Rain
Lobby fountain, Sheraton Rittenhouse Hotel, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 1999.
Sandblasted glass, aluminum, paint, stone, copper, water.
300 glass lenses sandblasted with different leaves from the trees of the local forest are set against a deep blue stone wall. Water drips down like rain and falls on the different clusters of leaves and into the stone swale where the water is then re-circulated. The sound of rain dripping fills the hotel lobby.
