2008 - metal: Cor Ten; steel, stainless; gold leaf; silver leaf; LED lights; solar cells
While they are known throughout the world for their unique individual art, Robert Roesch and Suzanne Reese-Horvitz have collaborated on many large-scale public commissions in glass and steel, and have served as cultural advisors to United States embassies in the Middle East, South America, and Southeast Asia. Their pieces explore the scientific as well as the aesthetic, combining the issues of a “green” world by using solar power to soften and transform the severity of the planes of cor-ten steel which comprise their work. Whereas Roesch’s contribution to the collaboration deals with formal shapes and the raw power of the sculptural medium, Reese-Horvitz adds painterly surface treatments that establish the placement of 'Transduction – Hamilton' in a mapping context.
