Description

These two reflecting spheres transform the bridge into an observation deck that mirrors the environment in unexpected ways. Each sphere presents the observer with a panoramic view that includes the sky, river, shores, bridge, pedestrians and cyclists. By looking into these spheres, we see ourselves immersed in the world around us.

Kenneth Emig’s art practice intersects form, light, sound, movement and technology.  He aims to elicit awareness of our own perceptions and understandings of our world.
