The Art of Wind

Posted by on Wed, Nov 7, 2012 at 8:58 AM

It's an installation. It's called Windswept. It's by Charles Sowers. It's 612 rotating weather vanes planted on a wall in San Francisco. When the wind blows, the vanes, which are made of aluminum, swirl and soothing patterns are appear and disappear. It's like magic.

Thanks for posting beautiful, sanity-making posts throughout the election craziness of the past 2 days, Charles. It's been lovely and helpful.

Reminds me of isobars. It's cool visualizing the wind. It feels on your face the way it looks.

I think it's awesome -- better than most everything we have in out sculpture park, at least

Or it's just really stupid. Here, Tonderai, have a ball and a piece of string and go play out in the slums.
