The California Veteran's Memorial stands under the trees of the California State Capitol Park.  The memorial needed to be formal, timeless, and of sufficient scale to both solemnize and celebrate the sacrifices of the veterans.  To accomplish this we used the formal obelisk shape and then photo-etched images of veterans onto the reflective surface.  In using snapshots from photo albums we wanted to capture the experiences of not only the soldiers themselves but also their families.  Keefer&Gillman.
