A kinetic aluminum sculpture by Christine Rojek is coming to Norfolk, Virginia in 2024.
Counter-balanced aluminum tubing topped with forms that mimic common flora and fauna found along the Ohio Creek will encircle the sculpture. As the wind blows, subtle motions will be created that activate hidden chimes positioned at the base of the sculpture. Perforated aluminum appears throughout the interior to simulate the flowing of water. The sculpture will be crowned with figurative silhouettes and topped with a hand-cut, wind-driven, blue spinning finial.
Project made possible by a National Endowment for the Arts Grant and additional funding from Norfolk Arts.
