Installation of three wind driven kinetic windflower sculptures on the Epic Systems campus. Windflowers stand approximately 6 feet tall, but can be taller. Made from recycled bike rims, plumbing parts and LDPE plastic.
Located outside one of the buildings to provide a relaxing view to office workers. The site was a wooded plot adjacent to a small stream. The work blended into the landscape and added to the woodland site. Installation was viewable from a well-travelled sidewalk between buildings.
Site location was essential to the success of the project.
Artwork has been removed after approximately three years on location.

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
