Using various metals, Ms. Casida enjoys making sculptures, particularly for public places. The “Sky Window” is a tent-like aluminum 9' x 15' x 12' structure originally commissioned by the Berkeley Civic Arts Commission. An elegant moss rock with seating for two sits in the center of the form where visitors may reflect on the beauty of nature, enjoy the sound of water, and gaze on the amazing view of the Bay.
Visitors express positive enthusiasm and enjoy interacting with the sculpture, often interpreting it in different ways. According to Ms. Casida, “some visitors compare the teardrop shape to symbolize a peace sign or an Egyptian ankh …suggesting enduring life.” However it is interpreted, visitors appreciate the newly restored “Sky Window” sculpture at the Marina.
