Blowhole


More public sculptures at Docklands Park. This one called " Blowhole " Just the wind can blow this hole because it is 15 m. high wind powered. Sculptured by Sydney-based artist, Duncan Stemler, creating a spectacular animated beacon within Docklands' playground and park. The piece heralds the area's maritime history and it's renaissance as a vibrant urban destination. When the wind is strong enough ( today ), the armature and cups form a complex galaxy of orbiting balls, mimicking the anemometer on top of a yacht's mast.


By your requested : who want to see this wind sculpture in motion

I like kinetic sculptures, and this one is colourful and full of fun. At 15m high, it must be very impressive!
