Mikyoung Kim in Surface Magazine
“Surface Magazine” featured a piece on “The Bridge Tender’s House”, Mikyoung Kim’s (Professor, Landscape Architecture) kaleidoscope installation at the 14th Street Bridge watchtower in Washington, DC. The kaleidoscope is constructed of six dichroic acrylic cones placed inside the tower, one facing each window pane. Each cone contains a mirror and a light. The dichroic cones produce different hues when viewed from various angles and revolves like the light in a lighthouse. The watchtower is visible from the Washington Metro, the Potomac River and the bridge.
The “Bridge Tender’s House” was commissioned by Washington D.C.’s Commission on the Arts and Humanities.
