Shimmer

"Using the refractive qualities of florescent and jewel toned plexi glass, this piece activates the the Congress Street Bridge and changes the public perception of a familiar urban environment. The piece is constructed to catch the natural and ambient light to create a luminous field of color and alternating hues. The visual impact of the “Shimmer” will change as the light changes throughout the day."

PYR 2014

Don Elyes: “Consider the history has passed along the cobbled streets of Boston — all the men and women, famous or unremembered, who have walked and rode here, crossed our bridges, gathered in our public spaces, imported and exported, bought and sold — always with granite cobblestones beneath their feet and wheels. I have long dreamed of making this history tangible, by constructing a great pyramid from the cobblestones uprooted by the City’s recent development.”

Partisans

"Partisans Monument memorializes Polish underground fighters of World War II. The dark, textured sculpture stands 23 feet tall and was formed from an aluminum cast. Five gaunt soldiers, heads bowed, ride on starved horses toward inevitable death. The sculpture explores universal themes of freedom and liberty in a powerfully expressed style."

"Leviathan is woven from welded steel. It descends an outdoor stairway at the World Trade Center like a giant Slinky, its meshwork construction giving it both an airy look and the translucent menace of a giant jellyfish."
