The "Wind Fence" sculpture was located on the grounds of the University of Oregon. Here it was viewed from behind. From this distance, it looked more like a sign and less like art.

The "Wind Fence" viewed from one of its ends. People walking on nearby paths gave a hint as to large it was.

The "Wind Fence" sculpture, by artist Ned Kahn, was composed of thousands of small hinged flaps that could be flapped open or closed by the wind. There was little wind that day.

One Close Panel

One of the panels was shown closer. In this shot, it appears defaced. This effect was caused by the shadow of a nearby tree.

A Few

A few of the flaps were blown slightly open by a light breeze. This "Wind Fence" sculpture should be much more exciting when a good wind blew.

The Back

The back of the "Wind Fence" sculpture, by artist Ned Kahn, looked much the same as the front. The advantage of the back over the front was that there were no trees behind it to cast shadows.

The sculpture was composed of several panels attached to upright poles planted in the ground.

The individual panels, that formed the "Wind Fence" sculpture, were bolted to brackets welded to the poles. In this close view, the individual wind-blown flaps could be seen (not blown due to the absence of a wind that day).
