Overview

The piece located at Fire Station 20 is a representation of the 3 natural forces present in the control of a fire (fire, wind, & water). Wind, which fuels the flames, was the element outside of human control, while water is the extinguishing element that firefighters are trained to control. The artwork is made from 1-inch stainless steel tubing, formed in long strands, and welded together to create an abstract representation of these natural elements.

Goals

Create identity and metaphor for Fire Station 20
