Wind Fossils, 1988

Rimouski Museum, Jardin de Metis.

┬áCommissioned by the Rimouski Museum and installed in the Jardin de Metis, the steel poles are set out in a grid suggesting some industrial structure, the stone columns in the center have blowing grasses etched deeply into their surface as if this moment on a summer’s day was caught forever like a fossil. Brass leaves hanging from the poles swing in the wind and catch the sunlight and make gentle wind chimes. The central pool reflects the columns and brings the sky’s reflection down to one’s feet.
