Glacial Wall Proposal
Proposed Project Description
The Joel Berman Glacial Wall invites travelers coming through YYC on a journey both physical and temporal.
Moving through the concourse, with the sculpture towering alongside, we are audience to an abstract fly-through of the Alberta landscape that we have just flown into.
Using Berman’s signature cast glass textures, renowned for their elegant abstraction of surfaces found within nature, and a true artisanal approach to architectural sculptures; a clear narrative of formation and erosion is told.
The piece inspires awe and intrigue for the busy fly-by commuter on the way to a business meeting, a leisurely tourist taking time to explore the natural beauty of the local
landscape interpreted in an art glass sculpture, and the curious child who takes time to examine the subtleties of its form .
