The Air Above – An irregular polyhedron of reflection

The Air Above is a new project by environmental designer Michael Pecirno that explores how public sculpture can find form and purpose entirely from its context. Situated behind a short fence, on a rolling grassy opening underneath three towering maple trees emerges the sculpture.

Clad entirely in highly-polished stainless steel, The Air Above reflects vignettes of the branches above, the grassy land it sits upon, and the sky. The effect of having a mirrored finish allows the sculpture to become both a subtle addition to the landscape, while exposing visitors to the beauty of the landscape above.
