Fluid Currency

Various Artists

Fluid Currency consists of a series of artist-designed lighting sconces integrated into the Renaissance Square development, referencing the history of Art Deco architecture in the City and providing a functional art amenity to the building. Fluid Currency is an attempt to illuminate the dynamic programming housed within the building to which it is attached. With a community bank on the ground floor and a meeting space for community organizations on the top floor, the artist team felt that there was a story to be told. The cast glass elements of the light fixtures have images of various forms of dendrite used over time as a mechanism for the exchange of goods and services. These forms of currency have varied greatly from time to time, dependent on what a particular culture found to be of the highest value either financially or spiritually.
