Overview

25’ x 50’ x 50’ stainless steel, aluminum and gold leaf

Goals

Created for the roundabout collection in Bend, OR, this kinetic sculpture features five stylized “trees” that engage the surrounding space and created a strong signature presence. The frequent breezes create a rippling effect amongst the 500 golden leaves.

Process

Designed (with assistance from Leslie Dixon), fabricated (with assistance from Mark Baltes) and installed by McCall Studios
