The Facts: An optic crystal feast for the eyes! This upright, three-dimensional tower features several multi-colored slices with clear ones in between, making for a gradient effect and more. Anchored by a solid black, cubic base, the vibrant levels atop create a visually pleasing, stacked effect.
Subjective Interpretation: The Order of the Engineer is a relatively young organization (started 1970) to which Henry was selected in 1986. According to the Order of the Engineer's official website, their organization upholds devotion to the standards and dignity of the engineering profession. The stacked levels can be seen as a progression in integrity, ethics and achievement in the engineering field. Even though the piece is tall, it is also quite sturdy and segmented, which is a reminder that when something is built properly there is no limit to how successful it can be, whether it's an organization or an entire career.
Creative Note: This piece features alternating slices, or levels, of color and clarity. From a direct angle these different levels can be distinguished with ease, appearing as a horizontally striped design. The more angular one's view is, though, the more the display merges together, shedding its stripes in favor of a vast gradient of vibrant, but still somewhat subdued colors.
