Overview

Rhythm of Wind is a Land Art piece utilizing repurposed metal
material. The rods are erected in a curvilinear formation in the
vast field, suggesting the flow and cadence of wind patterns. The
work seeks to imbue characteristics of nature into man-made
materials, as a reminder of our part and place in the larger
scope of the environment.

Goals

It is a repurposed materials project.

Process

The students at Shantou University’s public art and design
program collaborated with Sheng to fabricate the project during
the Public Art Festival/Symposium. As a visiting artist, she
taught a master workshop class on installation and creating
large works for the public.
