Wind Leaves Sculpture

Saves: 2
Check-ins: 6
The aluminum sculpture is covered in stainless steel discs making it shimmer in the light as well as making a sound like rustling leaves when the breeze moves them. Created by artist Ned Kahn in 2006 the sculpture interacts with its environment including people. Sunlight causes it to sparkle, wind causes it to move, and people can actively engage with it by turning it using the handwheels at the support columns. It's also a musical sculpture with tinkling sounds that can be created with percussion using drumsticks to hit the columns like a xylophone. The sculpture is located within walking distance of the Discovery World Museum and Cudahy Gardens.
