‘Carry the Light’ opened Aug 4, 2017

My new public art installation opened August 4, 2017 at the Los Alamos, NM Golf Course Community Building.

Carry the Light by Doug Czor

The work titled “Carry the Light” is created from Plexiglas and Dichroic Film on panels that suspend from the ceiling. When sunlight hits the Dichroic Plexiglas panels, they reflect and transmit a dazzling display of light and color that splash over the walls and ceiling. As the angle of the sun changes, so does the color.  Each panel has a length to width ratio of 1.618… which is an irrational number and is historically termed the Golden Ratio.  The resulting rectangle is termed The Golden Rectangle because when we divide this type of rectangle into smaller rectangles of same ratio inside each other, a drawing of this geometry produces a spiral, the type of spiral that mysteriously appears in sea shells and plants.  This spiral geometry can be imaginatively viewed in a sculpture cluster by placing the three panels over one another.

The sculpture is now on display and visitors can see my new work at the Golf Course Community Building on Diamond Drive during regular business hours.  The building is usually open in evenings for a quality restaurant and bar.   A number of sculpture clusters are hanging in the restaurant and are lighted at night with spotlights, which project colorful images upon the ceiling and walls.

The restaurant is titled “Cottonwood on the Greens” at:  https://www.cottonwoodonthegreens.com/
