2011 Redesign and installation including interactive component. IUAM managed public art project.

2012 Light Totem added to IU Freshman Bucket List

Location-specific considerations: SHAPE and TOWER, which include spotlights pointing into the sky were designed well under air traffic regulations and in coordination with local air traffic to ensure safe air travel above Totem.
