Lightbox

“Lightbox” by San Antonio artist Cade Bradshaw in collaboration with landscape architect STIMSON Studio is a representation of North San Antonio’s landscape and fauna and a space to see, observe, and reflect. Stacked layers of perforated steel form a topographic elevation map. On close inspection, the map’s hill shapes are revealed as abstract native animals. When inside the structure, the overlapping steel panels modulate light. Higher topographic elevations appear darker than lower elevation regions as light flows in through progressively smaller openings. Looking through the wall’s perforations yields views of an open meadow, home to the species represented on the map.
