Summary: A spectacular new sculpture soars above the Telecom Corridor® in Richardson, Texas and exemplifies the city’s commitment to its Public Art Master Plan. The design by Ed Carpenter, was recently installed at a site specifically selected for this unique public art opportunity celebrating the history of technology in Richardson. The 70’ high structure resides in a highly visible location at the center of the community and is in close proximity to the Central Trail for pedestrians to enjoy. The Micro Macro Mojo sculpture is made up of a stainless steel, laminated dichroic safety glass, and galvanized steel components. The entire structure needed to be able to withstand the elements and sustainable solutions were favored in the design process. Due to its extreme height, minimal maintenance and longevity were extremely important. Ed Carpenter had previous experience designing sculptures in highly visible outdoor spaces and therefore knew hot-dip galvanizing would deliver on these project objectives while offering an aesthetic that matched the overall project vision.
