This wind-based project is integrated into the support structure of a pedestrian bridge, and intended to demonstrate the movement of the wind in a three-dimensional setting. In this work, two columns support larger diagonal cables connected to the base of the bridge, while additional vertical cables extend between the diagonal cables and the base. The vertical cables hold varying numbers of triangular, pendant-shaped aluminum panels which rotate freely in the wind.

Much like a contemporary version of a weathervane, the pendants indicate the direction of the wind. Viewers can walk across the bridge, among the pendants, experiencing the changing direction of the wind through visual cues within an immersive space.
