An ancient form updated with the visual language of the ROM's bold new Daniel Libeskind addition, this 20-foot tall interactive obelisk respects the museum�s heritage while recognizing those who contributed to its future.
The texture of the carved names invites visitors to touch the surface of the obelisk. As a person�s hand nears the surface, the depths of the nearby names glow with a soft light. The glow smoothly follows the movement of each visitor's fingers, lingering in a graceful trail that gradually fades away.
The donors� experience of lighting up their own names is one of astonishment and delight. The personal response increases donors� sense of ownership and stewardship for the space and the institution.
