Lightwave by Gerome Kirk is one of those sculptures that is best understood at night. A kinetic sculpture, it spins around a central post, appearing to spiral up. During the day the spokes that spiral out seem to be the rays of light, and Lightwave appears to be just like any other sculpture on campus. However, at night when the lights below shine up, it becomes a much different sculpture; almost glowing as a result of the lighting. As I passed by tonight, on my way from the ceramics lab, I couldn't help but take note and appreciate it a little more than I had before.
