For this project, we were interested in the symbols or insignia of the U.S. military that are a badge of honor and a great source of pride and accomplishment. The chevron, a "V" shaped symbol, has been historically worn in one form or another, in all branches of the U.S. Military since 1821.The chevron symbol is interpreted into Corten plates that are configured in a spiraling vertical array creating a sculptural spire characterized by a flowing wave-like surface and composed of local river stones. The river stones change in density and color as they move up the artwork, providing a sense of lightness and drama.
