Cloud Forest is located in the entry of Palo Alto’s new state-of-the-art Mitchell Park Library. Inspired by the redwood tree which is the symbol of Palo Alto, the sculpture is an abstracted interpretation of the unique exchange between the coastal redwoods & Pacific Ocean marine layer.  If one looks they can find images within the lacy steel pattern; clouds, birds, seeds, unfurling sprouts, branch bifurcation and more. The steel curves subtly “billow” from the walls to join with the hand-brushed finishes in creating uncommon light reflections. These complex patterns of light & steel signify the worlds within worlds found inside the Library.
