Artist / Diana Goldberg and Julie Cohn’s Luminaria Art is a series of 10-foot-tall stainless steel cylinders with interior lighting located in the entrance garden area. Diana and Julie wanted the designs in each cylinder to evoke something different, namely computer technology, weather and mapping, routing, thermodynamics, Bernoulli’s Principle, and physics. to do this, each cylinder has unique cutouts.
We use Stainless steel plate material with several different pattern cutouts which were accomplished with water jet technology. GSEI used the RISA 3d program for the plate pattern analyses which allowed the artist flexibility in placing the cutouts with out sacrificing strength. The center post supports is a light tower as well as a support connected to the concrete foundation and the barrel Luminaria.
The finished art is striking and compliments the entrance to Love Field Airport.
