Kirk Seese


Magnify is an invitation to explore, play, and have fun. It invites the curious, inspires the creative, and adds wonder to the everyday domesticity of life. This interactive, kinetic sculpture acts as a giant magnifying glass. Sunbeams pour through the colored “lens” as the viewer swivels the rings into position to catch the light, casting a stained glass reflection on the ground, or anything else it hits. Made from CNC cut, sign industry-standard MDO board, primed and painted black, a steel post, and a 1/2” thick piece of circular, clear acrylic with designs directly printed on using UV Ink from a large format flatbed printer, this piece is meant to be enjoyed outdoors.
