George Sherwood,
Wave Cloud
2013 Stainless steel, 96” x 96” x 144”

Wave Cloud is suggestive of a floating body of water. It is comprised of thousands of stainless steel elements woven into a grid. Each element ripples in the wind and together create ever-changing wavelike patterns. Shades of light, time of day, precipitation and seasonal color transform the qualities of the light and movement.

Kinetic and Monumental
