...rising and falling in gentle undulations, as if an enchanter had struck the ocean swell, and it was at rest forever...
- Eliza Steele, Summer Journey in the West (1840)
GFRC concrete, copper plated steel, solid copper
The ubiquitous snowdrift of the prairie landscape; of the frozen river; of the windy crossroads of Portage and Main. This form speaks to the subtlety of the prairies and whispers the pure simple beauty uncovered through a second glance. The snowdrift creates a series of contour lines that can be traced by the eye. Each of its linear gestures unique in its expression.
This multi-fixture statement piece takes form as a trio of drifts, each a different size. The easily adjustable forms can be tilted and reconfigured to suit the needs and preferences of its users. Intended to be sculptural in form, a light from above, much like the sun shining on the drift, highlights the gently undulating form and celebrates the shadows created through the subtle curvatures.
