Relfection Rising by Patrick Shearn of Poetic Kinetics
On display: Nov. 17, 2017 – March 5, 2018
Reflection Rising was a site-specific installation designed for the Scottsdale Waterfront and Canal Convergence. It ran above the canal from the Marshall Way Bridge to the Soleri Bridge near Scottsdale Road. Hundreds of thousands of brightly-colored streamers suspended by a lightweight, virtually invisible net, allowed the kinetic sculpture to move fluidly in the wind.
Phase I had been in place since November and Phase II, an addition to the piece, was installed in time for the Canal Convergence event. It is a literal extension of the piece with the streamers fading from bright colors into a silvery Mylar encompassing Soleri Plaza.
