Sculptures by Ned Kahn seen at SFPUC, San Francisco - Firefly

Firefly

Ned Kahn's Firefly installation dramatically reveals how wind moves around and through it. The hinged, polycarbonate panels swing with the unseen patterns of the wind. The artwork also serves as a gantry for a series of power-generating, vertical axis wind turbines that power the lights as well as feeding electricity back into the building of SFPUC.
