About This Image

This is the infamous Wind Wand, designed by kinetic artist Len Lye. It was New Plymouth's "Millennium Project" for the year 2000. The rate-paying residents had to fund a major part of its $300,000 cost, which irked at the time.......but I think most of us kinda like it now. Well, I do anyway. Apologies if it's a little out of focus but I just held the camera against the base, pointed up, clicked & hoped for the best! :o) Oh, and it's taller than it looks, check out the website (it's easy to find, just google windwand!).
