Warm Embrace was commissioned for the 2019 Portland Winter Lights Festival and created in collaboration with Kelsey Loontjer.
Warm Embrace welcomes visitors with a cozy destination away from the winter chills bathing its tenants in colorful LED lights and reflections.   Inspired by the architecture of the American Indian Tipi, Warm Embrace establishes a place for gathering, gazing, and camaraderie. Constructed simply using cable and mirrors, Warm Embrace is prepared to follow in the footsteps of its nomadic predecessors: forging ahead to welcome future nocturnal visitors.
