As an outdoor site-specific artwork for the Denver Botanic Gardens, Albedo project started with a few simple reflections on the idea of botanic gardens and their relation to Sun. From its concave and convex surfaces to the orientation of its structure, entire artwork is formed by the daily and yearly cycles of the Sun in the particular location of Denver Botanic Gardens. Much like the shifting colors of the seasons, artwork also changes its appearance by reflecting and refracting sunrays, and observation angle of its audience.
