This gateway sculpture was made from found objects and recycled materials. It is illuminated using inexpensive and accessible solar components. Community members donated small items that were incorporated into the sculpture. Playful by day and magical by night, the Totems became an identifying landmark for San Diego’s Azalea Park Community. The materials are temporary in nature, leading to a playful evolution of installations.
This is the first gateway sculpture.
The solar lights slowly twinkle on at dusk bringing the sculpture to life at dark.
The playful sculpture was made from recycled, repurposed, temporary materials.
The second gateway sculpture installation was again made from recycled, repurposed, temporary materials.
At night the solar lights transforms the sculpture.
The headdress was created using a sunburst design using a purple bicycle rim with citrus reamers and other acrylic objects.
