The Piece I did for the Kelly Engineering Building, Fractals and Trees, visually incorporates two concepts used in computer science, fractals and trees. These two concepts are expressed in the layout of the large reflectors. The design is composed of a series of squares with the center square 16 reflectors by 16 reflectors, with the next 8x8, then 4x4, then 2x2 and lastly 1x1. This sequence is repeated from 16 to 1 and then back to 16 etc. Small white reflectors are layered over this pattern with the intent to resemble a computer motherboard.
