Located in the olive grove adjacent to the Visitor’s Center at Apple Park, Mirage includes over four hundred glass columns that weave through and amongst the olive trees. The pillars of pure cast glass are made with sand collected from deserts across the Earth. In daylight the sculpture varies in iridescence, and in the evening it gently glows. Mirage has a strong material presence, connecting to the elements and reflecting the environment. The experience of watching the light fall through becomes a form of meditation; time standing still. Mirage creates a moment of pause, inviting all visitors to slow down, and tune into the immensity and preciousness of our planet. Visitors can interact with the artwork, walking alongside and through, where the glass appears to subtly melt into the landscape, like a desert mirage. • In collaboration with Katie Paterson. • www.mirage.place • Photography: Iwan Baan, Hunter Kerhart (4,15).
