Demiurge has recently completed a second project for artist Volkan Alkanoglu, titled Plume #02. The project was commissioned by the Utah Public Art Division for the Salt Lake City Community College in Taylorsville, Utah. Plume #02 is 13 feet across and 41 feet high; the piece spans three floors of  the SLCC Instructional Administration Building, interacting with and accentuating the structure and composition of the building.

From Artist :
Constructed out of 300 folded and painted aluminum panels the aggregation of these multiple components and resultant dynamic motion reflects the inherent qualities and ideologies of the Humanistic Department at the college. It represents the ambiguous effort to to implement and flourish culture through an evolution of media and its vessels of communication.

In addition to this project, Demiurge worked with Alkanoglu to fabricate and install Plume #01 at the Cedar Rapids U.S. Cellular Convention Center and Plume #04 at the Community Concert Hall on the Fort Lewis College campus in Durango, Colorado.
