Nocturnal Flow, 2006

Erwin Redl
(Austrian, born 1963)

Location: University of Washington, Seattle

ABOUT THE ARTWORK

Erwin Redl's Nocturnal Flow reaches five stories in the University of Washington's Paul G. Allen Center for Computer Science and Engineering atrium. A roof-mounted sensor increases the intensity of the LEDs when the ambient light is at its weakest—on cloudy days and at night—creating a flowing wave pattern starting at the floor.

This artwork was acquired for the State Art Collection in partnership with University of Washington.
