Whistlestop for an Organ Teacher, 2009, stainless steel, 127 x 72 x 37”
Commissioning Agency: TriMet, Portland, Oregon
Location: 5th Avenue Busway, Portland, Oregon
Whistlestop references pipe organs, particularly a windchest with three fanciful pipes. It is intended to evoke sound and provide a contemplative moment in an urban streetscape. The softly reflective surface picks up changes in light and color from the surroundings.
