Description:  The process involved the design concept, as well as, the formal aspect of presenting and receiving approval from the Reston Association Design and Review Board (DRB) and the Public Art Reston Public Art Committee. The kinetic sculpture was first fabricated by students in the school parking lot to formalize the engineering process. It was then deconstructed and given to RA construction staff to reconstruct on the concrete spillway of Lake Thoreau. The work could be viewed from the pathway located between South Lakes Village Center and Ridge Heights Road. The project was unveiled on Thursday, May 8, 2014 and was up until the end of August 2014. Temporary project.
