DESCRIPTION: "Field" is a 92-foot-long artwork on the glass guardrail at Harl Commons, a meeting place for the School of Agriculture at Iowa State University. The imagery is inspired by the breathtaking horizontality of an Iowa field, serving as an emblem for agriculture as cultivated land and a reference to an area or field of study. Through a pattern of vertical lines, the image is divided onto two layers of glass, which creates a gap that allows the layers to interact with one another and shift in relation to the movement and position of the viewer.
