A series of 27 colored glass panels in a range of varying hues, “Sky Algorithm” reflects the tones of the Columbia sky during the 2010 summer solstice. Each color-specific panel is etched with the time of its corresponding photograph. More than 60 photographs were taken over the 24-hour period, sunrise to sunset, on June 21, 2010. Select panels features quotes or proverbs unique to countries along the 38th parallel – the line of latitude that Columbia Missouri shares with its global neighbors. The project was commissioned through the Percent for Art program.
