New Work, Theater of the Wind, 2016

Theater of the Wind is located on a grassy field between several glass buildings in Marina Heights on the edge of the Salt River in Tempe, AZ. The work is made of large recycled granite curbstone and weathering steel. The work allows for participation with integrated seating on stone steps cladding the bow of the boat. The boat emerges from a colossal picture frame, through which the viewer sees the river, a bridge over it, and the desert in the distance. “Theater of the Wind” creates a meditative living landscape painting which the viewer becomes a part of.
