Propeller Bench - an Ultralight Cooling Station

Take a seat.

Spin the propeller.

Feel the breeze.

Contemplate whirled peace!

As an artist who rarely sits still, I began to explore the conundrum of a

kinetic, yet peaceful resting place. Well worn propeller blades languishing in my airplane hangar quickly informed my vision. I imagined a tree bench with a gently spinning propeller in place of leaves. “leaves” to create cooling breezes whilst they lounge together under their kinetic Propeller Tree.

As the spinning wheel turns below their feet, they are free to VISUALIZE

WHIRLED PEACE – and, perhaps someday, THE WHEEL THING!
