Desert Light

This twenty-foot-high by five-foot-wide sculpture was created from panels of dichroic glass and a narrow, conical supporting frame of stainless steel. The multi-colored effect of dichroic glass is produced by a process called “thin film physics.” Thin-film physics are also responsible for the rainbow patterns in a soap bubble, the swirling colors in the thin layer of oil floating in puddle, and the dramatic reflections in dragonfly wings.
