“Cornell Tech Mag” by Michael Riedel. Located on the cafe ceiling and table tops, Riedel’s striking, black-and-white graphic imagery started with the first four volumes of Donald Knuth’s landmark publication, “Th Art of Computer Programming.”
“Everything that Rises Must Converge” by Matthew Ritchie. Located in the four-story atrium just beyond the main entrance, Ritchie considers his work to be a way to encourage Cornell Tech students and faculty to view their research as part of the larger human project.
“Ordinary Objects of Extraordinary Beauty” by Matthew Day Jackson. Located in a second floor meeting room, this collection of found objects creates a space that reflects the physical world beyond the institution.
“Abstraction” by Ilya Bolotowsky. This 50-foot-long mural was originally commissions by the U.S. government’s Federal arts Project under the Works Progress Administration (WPA/FPA). It was one of four abstract paintings created for the common rooms in the Goldwater Hospital complex which previously stood on the site of the Cornell Tech campus.
“Reclamation” by Alison Elizabeth Taylor. Located in a fourth floor meeting room, this work represents the continual churn of the cycle between nature and human endeavor.
