"Trigger Picasso Energy" - Hawai’i State Museum Sculpture Garden, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA
in collaboration with Carol Bennett
Trigger Picasso Energy is a freestanding sculptural canopy made of stainedglass, gold and silver leaf, aluminum and solar photovoltaic cells. The glass is 48' x 8', in eight sections. The sun projects vibrant dappled patterns beneath that change throughout the day.
Inspiration: The State Fish of Hawai’i is a "trigger" fish - the Humu’ humu’ apu a’a’ - I thought what better Trigger fish for the Art Museum than the "Picasso Trigger"? Trigger is also a verb that means putting something in motion, the title is a play onwords. ...Let’s get creative in our thinking about alternative energy!
