This project exemplifies what a huge difference lighting can make. The structure is illuminated using natural light from a second-story window, and employs track lighting both above and below the climber, illuminating the stain on the sculpted plywood.  As for the structure itself fairly simple, linear climber but that it has a lot of areas where kids can “hang out and socialize.” Tom Luckey reflecting on this climber said, “sculpture is not something you look at but something you experience from the inside out…These climbers are like fountains, and the kids are the water.”
