Sunset Box and The Sky Looks Very Different Today
Each year the Progressive CEO chooses a theme surrounding the annual report and then selects art that re ects and complements that theme. The theme for 2016 was transition: the process or a period of changing from one state or condition to another; a movement, development, or evolution from one form, stage, or style to another.
Lucia Koch explores how we can change the spaces we inhabit through subtle means, whether it’s through her large-scale photographs of the inside of consumer packaging that create the illusion of rooms or the site-specic installations where she transforms spaces through color and light. To represent the theme of transition, Koch created two site-specic installations in the Visitors Center of Progressive’s headquarters, itself a transition space into the campus. Using color filters, she painted the space with natural light, providing a new experience of the space for all who move through it. These works are a permanent addition to Progressive’s growing collection of contemporary art.
