Seeds of Light - Arlon Bayliss

  1. 1. Heracleum maximum, commonly known as cow parsnip, is the only member of the genus Heracleum native to North America. It is also known as American cow-parsnip, Indian celery, Indian rhubarb or pushki. The thick flower stems, coming into season in early summer, can be peeled and eaten cooked when young
  2. 2. Seeds of Light (2016), made by Arlon Bayliss with students´ and community participation for a pocket park facing the entrance of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Speedway, Indiana
  3. 3. From a distance, Seeds of Light appears as a tall, single- stemmed, flower-like structure approximately 25-feet–high. Its form was inspired by a native plant, Heracleum maximum (cow parsnip) which appears in the trailhead’s landscaping
  4. 4. Each lit floret symbolizes the exchange experience of Speedway’s Sister Cities students, their connections with their hosts, and their potential as global citizens. The floret’s interconnected, three-part form also references their growth in terms of head, heart, and hands, and the three connected Sister City communities of Speedway, Motegi, and Varano
  5. 5. This 25 foot tall stainless steel, sculpture lies at the intersection of the Town of Speedway’s Main Street and Indianapolis Motor Speedway main entrance. The form features a 12 foot shallow dome of arranged steel and glass clusters, the rear of which faces downwards towards viewers
  6. 6. Each cluster contains 16 florets – loops of folded steel. By day, dichroic glass gently colors colors the florets. By night, they sparkle as 256 LED lights refract light into the composition, engaging passers by as viewing angles change. The power requirement is 18 watts
  7. 7. The project celebrates the city’s student exchange programs with Italy and Japan. At the same time, it marks the intersection of a well-loved trailhead and Speedway’s Main Street
  8. 8. The primary form is inspired by a native plant and each floret symbolizes the students’ potential as global citizens. Situated in it’s own pocket park, the structure welcomes and encourages pedestrians to explore a growing downtown cultural district
  9. 9. Over 45 individuals volunteered 500 hours to fabricate and assemble the project. Students folded, riveted and spot-welded the florets, and members of the community joined in – soldering, wiring, cutting glass and assembling pre-fabricated parts
  10. 10. Beacon Bloom (2017), a 36-foot tall, outdoor public art sculpture representing a bouquet of flowers in the City of Carmel, Indiana
  11. 11. Viewers approaching and passing the roundabout see three, steel flower-like structures with curvy stems. They face south, northeast and northwest. The composition is raised well above the roundabout, making it easily visible to motorists; the tallest is more than thirty feet high. As viewers circle the form, its flowers’ undulating stems seem to make the sculpture come alive. At night the structure displays a delicate, multi-colored play of lights reflected in the undersides of the seven hundred and sixty eight stainless steel florets, which form the three flowers.
  12. 12. The sculpture serves as a beacon, signaling the presence of the roundabout not with a warning, but with a welcoming expression of hope and growth. It also marks an important entrance to the City of Carmel. The installation looks like a subtle firework display, a moment frozen in time
  13. 13. Atop each stem is a tilted twelve-foot wide domed flower. The flowers are comprised of sixteen stainless steel clusters on curved cluster arms. Each similarly domed cluster is two feet wide and contains sixteen florets, endless laser-cut three- lobed loops of cut and folded stainless steel strip. Inside each floret space age coated dichroic glass and LED lighting are combined so that by night each is bathed in subtly changing colored light. The seven hundred and sixty eight florets together use only 135 watts of electricity.
