ENERGY TREE is a kinetic wind sculpture, installed in front of the Marriott Hotel and Conference Center in Odessa, TX (2019).
This tree like form stands 27 feet high and has a span of 16 feet in diameter. It is fabricated all in stainless steel with the upper four rings powdercaoted in metalic blue and green.
Four 3-sided mobius rings rotate independently and freely with the wind. The entire top portion of the sculpture moves as a unit as well. As the wind blows, the sculpture comes alive with gentle unpredictable movements.
The patterns in the base represent the layers of the earth. At night, LED lights within the base cascade upward simulating energy rising upward from deep in the earth.
LED lights zip around the edge of each mobius ring symbolizing an electron rotating around its neucleus.
At the center of each ring are diamond shape forms that also illuminate at night. These are the jewels / fruit that this tree has produced.
