Spiral Resonance Field
an art installation by David Wood
presented by the Albuquerque International Balloon Museum
Connecting earth and sky, and providing an ever-changing experience with the movement of the sun, wind, light and dark, Spiral Resonance Field is a large outdoor sculpture by Nashville artist and Vanderbilt University professor of philosophy David Wood. The piece is located immediately north of the Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum. It "emerges" at the Center for Contemporary Art in Santa Fe as a small spiral and also at Mountainair, knitting together all three LAND/ART sites.
