Through the Cattails
The inspiration derives from the environment created by a field of cattails. Similar to the wild cattails, the piece is designed to flex with the wind creating a simple harmonic motion. This installation consists of 40 coroplast hexagon abstract cattail. Each cattail has a column made out of a telescoping 2" diameter emt pipe, its own light module controlled by a networked microcontroller that will gradually array multiple colors. During the day, relax under the cattails by its gentle sway and shade. And at night, lounge under its canopy and its ambience of ever changing animated light.
