Feather Column / by Chris Maynard

Instead of getting placed in shadowboxes, goose body feathers find themselves in a column, hanging still in the air but free to move about with any air motion. This is a new direction this is my first small piece. The first big installation of this idea is planned for an open 3-floor state building—the Washington Department of Ecology’s 40 foot high entryway. I envision a conical spiral.  The installation date has not been set, perhaps as soon as August. There’s a lot of logistics to figure out. I’ll post pictures when it is completed and, since the building is public, anyone may come to see it during working hours if you happen to be in the area.
