Pulse Portal: Installation by Davis McCarty
Explore Davis McCarty’s iridescent installation, Pulse Portal, on the Waterfront Plaza at Brookfield Place! Walk around the gemstones or through the dichromatic archway and view the rainbow palette of colored shadows that move throughout the day powered by sunlight. Pulse Portal is built from NASA developed materials where colors transform as the angle of the viewer transits through space. The vibrant colors represent the diversity of humankind and celebrate the individual spark living inside in each of us.
