The idea for crossing lights occurred some time ago and underwent a lot of iterations before its final form. I like the industrial diamond patterned metal plate and the way it reflects the light. The saw kerfs in the white "base" help align the two main axes. The combination of red and green light produces a neutral grey which Albers said was a spiritual blend of passivity (green) and glowing warmth (red).
