How is the sculpture supported? The weather must be horrendous at times. Is this a permanent sculpture? I do find it very unique because everytime the lighing changing it would look different…..What are the pieces made out of?
The weather is quite bad, this is the third windiest place in the world. However the sculpture is quite strong. It supports itself, and is fairly rigid. It will be permanent until the weather has taken its toll. The tiles are made with 9mm birch plywood. There are steel rods for the hinges.
You might consider moving it to another location before it gets too bad….a little new paint and Recycled. I would love to visit it, or…… maybe it could travel to the U of A at Fayetteville for our Math for Society class(?) to be re-presented!
It can’t be moved, it would fall apart. Besides it is natural for it to slowly come apart. Another option, you could make one yourself. This website has all the designs, and you have CNC machines at U of A:
