The Energy Alignment Sculpture is a minimalist tubular steel pyramid in the AQ. In accordance with the 20th-century movement, Beardslee’s piece reduces objects to their essential form, accentuating the shapes, colours, and materials involved. The same proportions as the Cheops pyramid in Egypt, the piece is 16 feet at the base and 10 feet high. The pyramid was donated to SFU by Ian Davidson in 1977.
Louis Bridge Beardslee III created architectural features internationally for many years for private corporate clients utilizing unique casting processes. This led to an interest in conceptual art involving universities and museums. Mr. Beardslee now lives in a semi-tropical oasis in southern New Mexico.
