Taking Off

Project commissioned by Launch Pad. A creative co-working space with views of the historic downtown in the beautifully renovated iconic Hahne Building.

This multimedia installation compiles a large mural that serves as a celestial background for a sculptural lighted pair of wings. The piece celebrates the grandeur of the Hahne’s building by creating a visual metaphor that elevates the spirit of every visitor at Launch Pad. The artwork was inspired by the 18th Century European style, Rococo. Specifically, from Venetian painter Giovanni Battista Tiepolo’s (1696-1770) masterpiece The Glorification of the Barbaro Family, ca. 1750, collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. We worked on brightening Tiepolo’s pastel color palette, simplifying his style while upholding his elegance.
