Overview

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.

Goals

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.

Process

Site location was essential to the success of the project.

Additional Information

Artwork has been removed after approximately three years on location.
