"Weather Beacon," Kinetic Sculpture That Transforms Weather Into Art

Erik Guzman's latest sculpture, "Weather Beacon" is an engaging piece that transforms atmospheric information into flashing lights and moving parts. It is currently on display at the Wold Financial Center Plaza until the end of the year. The kinetic sculpture translates weather data received via radio waves into visual representation of the elements of the environment of the four seasons.

“Part of our mission is to present art that prompts the casual passerby to stop for a closer look and leave a little bit more enlightened than before,” said Debra Simon, Artistic Director of Arts World Financial Center. “‘Weather Beacon’ takes an element of daily life that most people take for granted and transforms it into a gorgeous, thought-provoking sculpture that will mesmerize viewers of all ages.”
