"PNEUMA (Spirited Wind)" - CSU Transit Stop, San Bernardino, California, USA

in collaboration with John David O'Brien

Client: Omnitrans sbX Rapid Transit
Artist: John David O’Brien
Architect: Gruen Associates

Technique: Multiple layers of screen-printed vitreous colored enamels onto tempered and laminated float glass.

DESCRIPTION: For "Pneuma (Spirited Wind)", the artist created images and objects that should underscore how the sbX is ushering in a spirit of change, like a fresh breeze or a second wind. This public art project includes six unique, circular images inset into glass screen panels. The imagery for these circles is derived from a combination of aerial photography, satellite photography, topographical and standard maps. Each pattern is generated using images from a specific year: 1900, 1930, 1945, 1960, 1980 and 2000. Each station houses one time-map.

Thanks to Peters Studios’ collective patience and perseverance, we created different layers that all worked together and used different types of resolution to create an extremely interesting outcome which the public art committee was very excited about as well.
