Latent Energy has recently been installed in front of the Fred Pirkle Engineering & Technology Center at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas! The center is home to new facilities for the Department of Agricultural and Industrial Sciences. Latent Energy depicts a hydrocarbon molecule rising out of the ground reaching the height of the surrounding buildings. The iconic sculpture celebrates the Fred Pirkle Engineering & Technology Center and SHSU’s signature programs. During the day, the acrylic spheres that make up the molecules will pick up sunlight and glow softly. At night, brilliantly colored lights will illuminate the spheres from the inside creating an eye catching entrance to the Sam Houston State University campus.
