Premise combines metal and composite elements to produce an artwork which transcends its individual component pieces to become something greater. Suspended 18 feet above the South Atrium of the Colorado Judicial Center, the piece floats over a circular information desk and below a domed ceiling. Premise is composed of a large steel wreath with cast resin leaves; below hangs a translucent sunburst form which is illuminated from within.
