Installations Installations Installations

Montana artist Patrick Zentz creates sculptural instruments that translate events occurring on the earth. Three sculptures possessing the action ofa timpani, stringed instrument and flute were connected to wind receptors installed on the gallery roof that responded to the velocity, fluctuations and direction of wind activity. The “translation” of the natural events of wind source and velocity were intended to make the viewer more aware of the surrounding environment. Catalogue, essay by Patrick Zentz.
