Artathon 18: Green Wind
By sculptor and environmental artist Diane Maclean ‘Green Wind’ sits on top of The Tump, a sculptured earth mound on the Ravenswood housing development on the south-east edge of the town (the one time site of Ipswich Airport). Made of stainless steel the artwork consists of a dozen columns, varying in height from seven to ten metres, topped with coloured vanes that rotate in the wind. The columns are covered with a layer of oxidant that makes them change colour according to the amount of sunlight playing on them.
