A kinetic sculpture for the South Boston Maritime Park, South Boston, MA in collaboration with Halvorson Design Partnership(landscape architects) and Machado and Silvetti (architects). Three hand-turned mosaic and stainless steel wheels—14’ diam, 10’ diam, and 6’diam. When visitors to the park turn the wheels, the mosaic pictures align themselves in different ways to make playful combinations of the life of the waterfront past and present. The third smallest wheel has images of the aquatic life in the harbor waters.
