Wind Wheel Mobile is a kinetic weathervane with many wheels moving in harmony and driven only by the breeze. As a symbol for life, death and renewal, this mobile is a potent metaphor for the Asbestos Memorial located at Vancouver Convention Center (1055 Canada Place).
Structural elements of this sculpture have a visual relationship to the lungs and bronchial airways of the human body. Airborne asbestos fibres beara close resemblance to rotating spokes on the wheels.
As the wind changes direction, so does the position of the mobile…this multi-directional nature speaks to the variety of societal initiatives employed to raise public awareness of asbestos dangers.
