Paper Cloud is an installation of 140 unique paper lights. The project was initially created as a temporary installation for the 2017 AIA San Antonio Beaux Arts Ball at the Light Building in San Antonio, TX. It was a collaborative endeavor, constructed by more than 70 individuals. Over the course of eight workshops, more than 800 person hours went into its construction and installation.
The project is coordinated and executed by Stuart Allen and Cade Bradshaw (Bridge Projects).
Fabrication of The Kite Table underway, a new public project for the redevelopment of Hemisfair Park in San Antonio.

These are permanent pieces on the San Antonio Riverwalk, commissioned by the San Antonio River Foundation in 2008, installed in 2009. The work consists of suspended, stainless steel panels – each enclosing five layers of woven, architectural mesh. The three inner layers of mesh are treated with a powder-coated color. As visitors move by the installations on foot, bicycle or riverboat, the panels change color due to the viewer’s shifting perspective. The project’s 24-color palette was selected from photographs taken along the San Antonio River by my kids, Aidan and Vincent (4 1/2 and 1 1/2 when the snapshots were made).

This is a permanent installation in a hospital lobby, the Kaiser Permanente Women and Children’s Center in Roseville, California.
Each suspended piece is 6’7″ x 4’9″ x 2′ 2″. They are hanging from a single piece of 1/16″ stainless cable and a low-friction swivel, so they rotate with the interior air currents of the room. The lobby is approximately 25′ x 25′ x 25′.
