In 1975, the city of Los Angeles commissioned an ambitious artwork as part of a futuristic mall. This 60 foot sculpture, "Triforium", was created by artist Joseph Young, who was well known for his monumental work at universities and government institutions in the L.A. area. Young envisioned the artwork as a "polyphonoptic" experience incorporating computer processing and an array of 1,494 lamps. The intended display was similar to an audio visualizer or ceiling-projected laser show.
