Barn Devil

Dust Devils and Old Barns out in the Desert, brought together in this installation. The lower part of the structure is four large beams leaning, the upper part pulling back and up into a twisting swirl, as if it is caught in a tornado. The viewer will not only be able to stand below it and look up into the tree-like structure, but also go up and look down on the snake-like swirl from the balcony. This gives the viewer the unique experience of being both controlled by the physical phenomena and in control based on their physical relation to the piece.
