Wave Traveler, Stainless Steel, 18' h x 23' w x 5' d, 2009
Waterplace Luxury Residences, Providence, RI
Wave Traveler is located in the public courtyard of Waterplace Towers, a high-rise residential complex in downtown Providence, Rhode Island, along the Providence River. This piece embodies Gillian Christy's thoughts on water, waves, motion and energy, illustrating how both water and sound waves can be connectors. In addition to the wave form Christy clad one side of the wave with handmade, stainless steel floorboards. Overall, the piece is a pathway leading the eye upwards to a stair and in a small way to larger thoughts of home and life within the city.
