Wind Kinetic Sculpture

Stainless Steel

5.5’, 6.5’, and 7’ High

Created for the Sidwell Friends School, Washington, D.C.

Three Elements

Commissioned for Sidwell Friends School in Washington, DC, this wind-driven sculpture embodies the intersection of science and art, crafted specifically for the esteemed PK-12 institution. The sculpture features three elements, each symbolizing the Lower, Middle, and Upper Schools, respectively. It visually represents the dynamic relationships between these educational stages, reflecting both harmony and independence among the students as they progress.

Observers of the sculpture experience a complex interplay, where at times the elements align in unity or diverge to signify autonomy, and occasionally, one moves independently while the others remain static. These movements serve as metaphors for the diverse phases of human development, encouraging viewers to reflect on the nuances of growth and individuality. This piece not only enhances the aesthetic landscape of Sidwell Friends School but also functions as an educational tool, prompting contemplation of broader life lessons about interaction and personal evolution within an academic setting.
