Double Diamond has two different configurations of diamonds made with layers of light, mounted onto strips connecting them. They beam onto reflective materials, creating a glowing frieze whose light radiates outward. The location in the beams imbued the viewer with a sense of surprise and wonder, transforming the heavy, permanent materials of an architectural element into the lightest, most ephemeral form possible.
