Richard C. Elliott
Tower of Light
Recognized for his large-scale installations created by layering thousands of plastic industrial reflectors, Elliott transforms the Archdale elevator into a prismatic display of color, light, and motion. Tower of Light includes 36 individual compositions of reflector art mounted onto the elevator glass. Outside, the 30'-high spectrum of color and geometric design beckons riders approaching the elevator. Inside, natural light passing through the multicolored patterns simulates the visual effect of stained-glass.
