Re-Cyclone by Martin Taylor and the Chromaforms Art Collective
On display Nov. 9–18
Re-Cyclone is a 20-foot-tall, 10-foot-diameter, rotating sculpture made from 5,000 upcycled plastic water bottles arranged in the shape of a tornado. Animated light illuminates Re-Cyclone when participants rotate the sculpture with a hand-wheel at the base. LEDs mounted in the mouth of each bottle are wired to a computer control system that reads the movement of the sculpture and causes the LEDs to react.
Re-Cyclone embraces a sustainable message, designed to inspire people to use their creativity to address pressing environmental challenges that threaten our oceans and waterways.
