"… permanent, site-specific installation's design was conceived a mere two days before the artist's death in November 1996, and was realized posthumously by his studio.

Split into three portions, the largest installation is in the main interior space of the building (originally built as a Weingarten grocery store in 1930): Above and below dark purple lines of filtered ultraviolet lamps, colored fluorescent tubes progress the length of the room, reflecting upon the polished concrete floor. The entrance lobby contains a second work consisting of two sets of white lamps mounted diagonally on the original foyer walls. Outside, a horizontal line of green fluorescent lights articulates the structure's top edges along the east and west sides." (© 2009-2014 CultureMap LLC)
