Breathing Post
This kinetic sculpture is driven by a hand-crank at its base. As pedestrians turn the crank, the horizontal arms above rise and fall, like breathing lungs, or flying wings. It lived from 2004-6 on the streets of downtown Lake Oswego,OR, from 2007-13 at The Art Center in Corvallis, OR, and has finally landed at a permanent home at the Salem Convention Center.
