"Narrow Passages, Ageless Sound" by Don Dickson

"´╗┐This kinetic sculpture at the town hall of Osyoos BC incorporates kinetics and sound to interpret the geography and history of the region. The overall sculpture relates to the mountains, the reeds are the kinetic elements. These relate to the water flowing through this pocket desert. When moved by the wing they act as harmonic chimes. The seasons are shown with the discs at the base for the 13 month lunar cycle of the year." Description from Waymaking.com
