Portland-based artist Carter Hubbard installed Sweet Life Illuminated in the Bryan Center this Monday. The visually striking and colorful "spoondelier", comprised of more than 9,000 discarded ice cream spoons from a local business, hangs just to the left of the main entrance to the Bryan Center.

"I'm very interested in processes, and how cognizant people are of their actions. I want them to do their research," said Hubbard. "I seek to know better the underlying, fundamental systems and their inherent motivations and effects, beneficial and detrimental."

Working at the Center for Leadership Development and Social Action this past year as a sophomore has been extremely engaging and eye-opening, and has been both a learning experience and really fun. Over the course of the semester, I helped coordinate and assist with logistics of most of the Center's biggest programs such as Framework Fridays, Leaders in Residence Lunches, Alternative Spring Break, and the Leadership and Service Awards. My duties ranged from small office tasks like emailing, making phone calls, and copying important files to more exciting things such as introducing and meeting some of the greatest faculty on campus to learning more about the importance of leadership and what it looks like at Duke.
