This sculpture draws on the ephemeral qualities of nature as a visual metaphor for the creative process. Impressions might include a rush of water as the flow of knowledge, a gust of wind in the dispersion of ideas or the streak of a comet as a fleeting thought. When circumnavigating the site, the form unfolds in a spiraling movement.
