Rolex Tower Soundwave Sculpture

For the entrance hall of the Rolex Tower in Dubai, James Clar created the Rolex Tower Soundwave: a massive sculpture resembling a sound wave, made of stainless steel.

The sculpture is like an abstract name tag for the building, as the artist recorded his own voice, saying “Rolex Tower”. The waveform of this recording in 3D form was then used as blueprint for the sculpture. The sculpture blends in very well with the architectural design of the building:

Interesting piece of art to have on a lobby. I wonder how they set up the lighting of that at night. It'd be a waste if it wasn't lighted creatively. Maybe a few thin neon tubes just behind the wires for a luminous effect.
