Today I had the pleasure of documenting the installation of the 7th temporary public art installation for the Lake Thoreau spillway.
Created by the South Lakes High School STEAM team, the work explores the Gestalt principle. The Gestalt principle is the idea of the whole being greater than the sum of the parts.
The team notes that just as the pipes come together to form a greater whole, our communities and frontline workers have have joined together to fight Covid-19. The distinct colors also represent the connections between different communities which occur in time of crisis.
*Shout out to my friend and colleague Marco Rando, he shares his passion for art making and problem solving in real world scenarios with his students and the South Lakes community.
