Rebecca Rutstein is a Philadelphia based artist who creates abstract paintings, sculptures, and installations informed by science, data and maps. Her recently completed mural along the Schuylkill River has added a dramatic addition to the Philadelphia skyline. Many of her works are interpretations of the deep ocean based on her frequent expeditions at sea and collaborations with scientists. Her inspiration for this abstract work, represented below in a photoshop model and hi-def plasma cut steel sample, is the US EPA Ecoregions map of Pennsylvania. The Bower is situated within the Ridge and Valley ecoregion of the Appalachian mountain range. This freestanding Corten steel panel will span 67 feet and weigh 17 tons.
