Brief Description

The creative educational display or artwork structure can be stand-alone or
integrated into the site. Potential opportunities include data-responsive
installation or LED display in the greenway tunnel or a stand-alone sculpture /
display near the creek. The design will ideally include a virtual component that
residents can access online. The artwork will be situated next to a well-loved
greenway and should take into account interaction on a pedestrian scale.
The artwork will incorporate a visual representation of water levels, with an
emphasis on both current and historic data. The goal is to show how water
levels naturally rise during major storms and hurricanes. Topics to explore
include historic flood levels, why water levels rise in a stream during flooding
events and the natural benefits of creek flooding.
