Open Up The Doors
A public art project for the HRT, Norfolk VA's transit authority. The sculpture is mounted on the Bus Maintenance Facility in Norfolk and powered by a solar panel on the back of the tower. Each pair of panels slowly opens and closes like the doors of a bus, and each pair is off-set from the adjacent pair, creating a rhythm moving up and down the wall. The panels are etched with a map of the region with the main large roads shown in copper.
