Wilson’s stained glass north-facing window brings soft color and light from a window that receives no direct sunlight.  Light coming from the west facing windows is reflected by the bevels, lenses, and unusual glass components he uses creating unusual effects as the sunlight moves and produces ever-changing patterns.  The design emphasizes geometric forms, congruent with Art Deco styles, and suggests computerized circuitry grids and push button dots, placing it in direct dialogue with the technologically advanced library.  Wilson assembled Untitled in the traditional method of stained glass window making.
