Interlocking shapes and bright, colorful, luminous materials animate this piece inspired by the Art Deco movement of the 1920s and 30s.  The piece captures the lightness of spirit, driving energy and optimism in the future embraced by the movement, while translating its geometric style into my own musical language.
