Composition for Wind

Studio F Minus’ artistic creation will set out to explore the powerful relationship between humans and the natural world, integrating themes such as transformation and connection, inspired by lakeside elements such as wind and water. Their sculpture will be developed over the next several months and is set to be a landmark and contemplative piece that captures imaginations and draws eyes upwards and outward to Lake Ontario. Similar in nature to the artist-based hoarding initiative launched in 2020, the completed sculpture will allow the community to again connect with art, the site and its relationship to the waterfront. *Image is for conceptual purposes only. The final sculpture design may change.

"Composition for Wind is a moving cloud of particles suspended in the air. The sculpture is a threshold between built form and natural phenomena…[it] takes natural phenomena — wind — as input, and gives it a built form."
