The anatomy of a sculpture

perceptive software sculpture Suspended from the 90-foot atrium ceiling in the new Perceptive Software building in Lenexa, Kansas, is a one-of-a-kind large sculpture. It was designed to echo the Perceptive Software story in a visual, abstract way, taking unstructured content and data, and turning it into something more structured and manageable.

Friend of Perceptive Software and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak selected the number of hanging blocks: 579. This number is made of up of three consecutive odd integers that add up to 21, which is a number in the Fibonacci sequence frequently used by mathematicians and engineers.

The lighting on the sculpture can be set to any color of the rainbow, but will mostly be orange, representing the orange ball icon Perceptive first used for the company’s foundational product, ImageNow, now know as Perceptive Content.
