What It Is
Three laser engraved plaques have been created to adorn the walls near the “feature wall” graphic art displays in Washington State University’s Spark building. Each of the three feature walls, entitled The Victory Bell, the Cannon Shot Wall, and the Cougar Fight Song, contain graphics designed to commemorate the Cougar legacy and promote a sense of belonging and connectedness amongst WSU students.
The Victory Bell feature wall visually represents the WSU Bell chime as a waveform graphic. The plaque describes the history of WSU’s Victory Bell, including the fact that it was once used to signal the change of classes. The bell was eventually moved to the Lewis Alumni Centre where it is now rung to celebrate home football game victories. This plaque will be placed on each floor of the Spark beside the actual waveform graphics.
The Cannon Shot Wall is a visualization of the concussive blast of the canon fired at WSU football games. The plaque describing this feature wall will appear on the outside of the round classroom in the Spark building.
The Cougar Fight Song feature wall uses colored circle to create a visual representation of WSU’s signature song. This feature wall’s new plaque, which will be placed outside of Spark G10, includes the song’s lyrics and describes the history of the fight song and what it represents.
These plaques, made from crimson acrylic sheets, were machined on the laser cutter in the Spark 115 Design Studio.
