Luce Center Label

Steven Weinberg has cut a landscape into the base of this cube, presenting a maze of pathways that refract and distort when viewed through the polished sides. To create the single bubble, Weinberg drilled a hole through the block of glass and applied heat and pressure, causing the air to contract into a bubble. The delicate wave appears when two layers of clear crystal are joined together, veiling the scene with blurred texture.

Luce Object Quote

“By using the glass in its most pure state, I harmoniously marry the material to the concepts contained in the work. I create unity and visual balance, and in so doing, reveal myself.” Steven Weinberg, 2004
