Wind Thing
Powder coated stainless steel with metal flake

Project Area:  Hollywood
Project:  W Hollywood Hotel & Residences
Project Location:  6250 Hollywood Boulevard

At W Hollywood Hotel & Residences, artist Pae White installed a monumental kinetic sculpture. The installation consists of stainless steel forms suspended between the hotel and condominium buildings from tensioned cables and ball bearing swivels, allowing the individual elements to shift and shimmer when there is a breeze. The forms are a wide variety of laser cut stainless steel shapes, powder coated in seven metallic colors. The five stand sculpture fills the space with light and movement.
