Sangrock
(completed 2007)

36 W x 36 L x 6 D (92.16 cm x 92.16 cm x 15.36 cm)
1/8 aluminum and Neon

Our Dojang (martial arts school) was moving to a new facility and required a new interior sign. Somehow this image came to me right away. I wrote out the name, "Sangrock," and had a laser cut it out of 1/8" aluminum. The school colors, red and yellow, are backlit; the red showing through the cutout and the yellow bleeding off the edges of the sign. The metal symbolizes how ones mind and body become hardened through work and discipline. The neon represents the enlightenment one attains through this work and discipline.
