A series of 5 outdoor sculptures at the Arizona Science Center in Phoenix designed to reflect sunlight and create harmonic musical sounds as they spin in the wind. As the wind blows, the rotation of each propeller activates a mallet which strikes a tone bar causing it to play a note. At the same time, the triangular glass prism vanes shift in the breeze, changing colors. Each SunCatchers station is tuned to a different note of a pentatonic scale. Together, they create harmonic overtones in all directions while reflecting brilliant colors. Fabricated of stainless steel, glass, Lexan, and aluminum. Dimensions: 20’ X 6’ X 6’. Commissioned by the Phoenix Art Commission.
