SHEILA KLEIN

Island of Lights 1994
Los Angeles, California
In 1993, Sheila created Vermonica. In 2014, interest in a related project titled Island of Lights was renewed.

The proposed design for Island of Lights calls for installation of historic streetlights on a sun/star like stepped platform representing a compass. The Hoover-Union Triangle itself was formed by the intersection of the original Spanish Pueblo de Los Angeles street-grid crossing at a diagonal with the later Anglo-surveyed street-grid of 1853.
