University of Wisconsin Library
This 20′ square window for the library of the new School of Business at the University of Wisconsin in Madison is designed to create a soft light and quiet atmosphere within the library as well as a bold image on the exterior of the building. Its’ imagery suggests computer circuitry or Native American designs: highly divergent forms of information storage. Its’ composition of marbles and voids evokes both a digital and a hand-crafted world. Made of acrylic grid, copper sheet, laminated glass, and some 75,000 glass marbles, all sandwiched together into 56 sealed window panels, the window faces the campus and marks the library day and night. This is one of the many commissions Carpenter has completed using his unique marble and grid technique.
