Thermodynamic Flower by Naomi Fisher

Created specifically for Occidental Square, Thermodynamic Flower by Naomi Fisher drives at the tensions between nature and capitalist dynamics. Solar thermal glass tubes transfer heat to a flower shape that turns the sculpture from red to yellow, illustrating the sun’s psychological and emotional effects, as well as the transformation of solar radiation into heat via green technology. Mirrored surfaces enfold the viewers and surroundings into the piece itself. Enjoy Fisher’s project through Nov. 30.
