The artist manipulates the tree forms and transforms them with a process similar to what she uses in her paintings, creating layers of overlapping color and line abstracting the image into something new and intricate. The art will be in the glass panels walls of the elevator towers at the University City Boulevard and JW Clay Stations.
The design for the University City Boulevard Elevator Tower is loaded with color and appears abstract, with only an implied branching structure emerging from the image. The JW Clay tower design consists of a multitude of deep crimson branches filling a cone-like tree shape

The cohesive yet abstract designs will span the three stories of the towers, providing color while retaining their transparency in order to allow riders both within and outside the towers a chance to appreciate the art.
