Artist Statement

I built this piece to move with the wind. To some it might look like two wings. Sails are really wings in a more horizontal orientation. The sails are curved in three dimensions. Bending the stainless sheet metal into airfoils, without creating creases, was challenging.

Sometimes the two sails move in unison and at other times independently. They remind me of sailboats jockeying for position at the starting line of a race.
