Assignment: Sterling Fellows event hosted at The Yale Center for Engineering Innovation & Design (CEID). Design a centerpiece for a 40’ x 4’ table that is evocative of the activity that takes place in this lab. Palette, blue, and coral.

Solution: Sound waves move through space. Extruded 24” aluminum channels reference engineered metals. Slender stems of Volkenfried Delphiniums allude to wiring and their precisely aligned waves of blue florets trace the path of a sound wave that hovers over the surface of the Earth, rendered in strips of tiny spring seedlings emerging through moss, frosted white.
