Steel, Blue PEX Tubing, Hardware, & Artificial Grass
Location: Southeast corner of Jefferson Ave. and St. Louis St.
Inspired by a combination of forms and ideas including: diagrams of hurricane development as storm systems grow, the Slinky spring toy, and by waterpark lazy river innertubes. These pieces begin with the steel frame bases. After welding, pre-drilling, and painting the bases, each piece of PEX tubing is cut to fit, drilled, and attached tubing to the steel frames. This continues until all the spaces are filled and the arches are tight enough to connect into one complete slinky sculpture.
