Description: The Denver Art Museum built a new addition designed by Daniel Libeskind. Most of the walls are tilted. The chief contemporary art curator, Dianne Vanderlip asked me to create an installation for the 45 degree tilted wall at the end of the building. I decided to create cloth falling down an imaginary rocky surface. The imagery, a virtual animation of the cloth reveals an invisible rough surface as the cloth tumbles down.
