"Transduction-Hamilton" – Grounds for Sculpture, Hamilton Township, Trenton, New Jersey

"Transduction-Hamilton" – Grounds for Sculpture, Hamilton Township, Trenton, New Jersey
"Transduction-Hamilton" (whatever that name means!) was sculpted in 2008 by Suzanne Reese-Horvitz and Robert Roesch. It is made of Cor Ten steel, stainless steel, gold leaf, silver leaf, and LED lights powered by solar cells.

While they are known throughout the world for their unique individual art, Roesch and Reese-Horvitz have collaborated on many large-scale public commissions in glass and steel, and have served as cultural advisors to United States embassies in the Middle East, South America, and Southeast Asia. Their pieces explore the scientific as well as the aesthetic, combining the issues of a "green" world by using solar power to soften and transform the severity of the planes of cor-ten steel which comprise their work. Whereas Roesch’s contribution to the collaboration deals with formal shapes and the raw power of the sculptural medium, Reese-Horvitz adds painterly surface treatments that establish the placement of "Transduction – Hamilton" in a mapping context.
