What a beautiful kinetic installation by Charles Sowers! 612 aluminum weather vanes on the side of San Francisco's Randall Museum.
     Says Sowers: ”Windswept seeks to transform a mundane and uninspired architectural façade (the blank wall of the theatre) into a large scale aesthetic/scientific instrument, to reveal information about the interaction between the site and the wind.”
     They don't all go the same way! Instead they create beautiful patterns. Wish I could see this in person...

Thanks to The Kid Should See This for the heads up!
