Concept Description

The glass walls of Local Transport Centre have little crystal balls enclosed as an abstract free form composition. The visual look of the work stands the test of time and does not wear thin after repetitious times of seeing it. The crystals inside the glass are transparent, calm and unnoticeable if so wanted, but, on the other hand, their shape and how light refracts in them provides indefinitely details for a passenger to examine while waiting for the bus.
