‘Watermark’ is a form derived from aerial maps; the contours of rivers and creeks, and the grid patterns of the city are used to define the edges and the openings of the steel plates. The sculpture is topped with a symbol for water (H2O) in order to emphasize the importance of our waterways and the condition of our environment. This work is intended as a visual signpost used to locate the Rest Stop Art project sites for Pogues Run Creek and Trail.
The sculpture contains five storage cabinets that can be used to display information relating to the location, community, history, and environment. Other possibilities for display include works of art, written stories, and special projects. Items on display in the containers can be rotated as needed to add new interest to the work by members of the community and other participants.
Steel construction with acrylic panels and Fresnel lenses.
