Aside the grandiosity, delicacy and flow that all her sculptures show, this one specifically has an interesting interaction with the canal, reflecting the colors differently according to the movement of water.
“The form and content of the artwork draws inspiration from the interconnectedness of Earth’s systems. The artist used laboratory data from NASA and NOAA on the effects of the 2010 Chile earthquake, and the resulting 1.26-microsecond shortening of the Earth’s day. The sculpture’s three-dimensional form is inspired by Echelman’s mapping of tsunami wave heights across an entire ocean.”
