Detail, Minneapolis Foundation Recognition Wall

The Minneapolis Foundation Recognition Wall is composed of over 3,000 squares of Mahogany veneers, all from the same flitch. The difference in brightness is caused by the differing angles of the grain within the squares. In effect, the image exists only in light. The upper photo is taken from the left of the wall, and as one walks to the right side significant brightness changes occur in the surface.

Completed in 2000, located at the Minneapolis Foundation Headquarters, IDS Center, Minneapolis
