Falling Leaves | Adventist Health Hospital | Hindsdale, IL
The Adventist Health hospital in Hindsdale, IL wanted a hanging sculpture for a featured spot in its newly renovated facility.

The result is a cascade of aluminum leaves appearing to be falling to the ground in soft natural colors.
The technique of using aluminum shapes made with a CNC and then formed into a 3-dimensional design works well with environments that are completed without structures or blocking in place to support a fully weighted sculpture. There are many variations on this theme, as pictured below:
