CURRENTLY IN FABRICATION

This piece is to be situated in the city's Rotary Park, overlooking the historic Center Street bridge and the soon to be built Calatrava bridge. Though apparently situated in a prairie park landscape, it is actually mounted on the roof of a LEED certified underground building.

The piece is a gesture to the native glacial and prairie landscape, and its people. A rambling path of local stone and bent pipe loop-de-loops across the horizon, apparently in motion, defying gravity like a frozen river. A staircase leads to an observation platform where the path ends and the sculpture continues – extending beyond the loop, above the park, and to the horizon. At the very apex of its reach, a native wild blackberry bush grows, seemingly floating against the sky.
