Blowhole, Docklands Park
Blowhole by Duncan Stemler
Public Artwork at Docklands Park
Blowhole is a 15 metre high wind-powered sculpture with armature and cups interacting with each other to form patterns, colours and shadows. The cups are arranged to pick up the wind in the way of an anemometer on the top of a yacht’s mast. Therefore, each cup/arm/hub arrangement will spin in a clockwise or anti clockwise direction. The rotation speed is entirely dependent on the location’s prevailing winds.
J & M Gunning Metal Spinners was called upon to spin each cup in the sculpture.
