Murmuration

Murmuration

By Marguerite de Messières & Tsvetomir Naydenov

Honoring the weight of loneness, the beauty and power of community, and the bright tenacity of hope, Murmuration was designed to be reflective and emotional. It is made of a weather-sealed mild steel structure with thousands of small colored aluminum tiles strung on a swirling grid steel wire and using high quality bearings. The kinetic sculpture spins, flips, and twists smoothly in the breeze over the surface of the water, shimmering and flickering in a silvery etheral cloud. The artwork spans 12 feet in width and reaches 10 feet above water.

Murmuration is displayed in 2022 for the second consecutive year.
