29° 25' 57" N / 98° 29' 13" W and 29° 26' 00" N / 98° 29' 07" W are permanent installations along the famed Riverwalk in San Antonio, Texas. The work consists of suspended, stainless steel panels – each enclosing five layers of woven, architectural mesh. The three inner layers of mesh are treated with a powder-coated color. As visitors move by the installations on foot, bicycle or riverboat, the panels change color due to the viewer's shifting perspective. The project's 24-color palette was selected from photographs taken along the San Antonio River by the artist's children Aidan and Vincent (4 1/2 and 1 1/2 when the snapshots were made).
Installed at the McCullough and Brooklyn Avenue underpasses, the project is part of a significant public initiative to expand the San Antonio Riverwalk. Funding for multiple public art commissions along the initial 1.5 mile development was provided by the San Antonio River Foundation. Click here for more information about the larger project.
