Painted steel, LED light, water tank level gauge
16’w x 19’d x 14’h
This shade structure is an abstraction of cloud and rain. It features 6 circular disks cut with words describing the various states of water in the water cycle. Each disk is supported by a slanted column mimicking the raindrops by its angle and the LED lights embedded in the column. The LED light is controlled by the water tank level gauge and functions as an indicator for the storm water level in the storage tank located underneath the artwork site. This poetic cloud & rain sculpture functions as a teaching tool, a shade for the students waiting to be picked up, and a indicator for the storm water tank level.
