DESCRIPTION: For "Pneuma (Spirited Wind)", the artist created images and objects that should underscore how the sbX is ushering in a spirit of change, like a fresh breeze or a second wind. This public art project includes six unique, circular images inset into glass screen panels. The imagery for these circles is derived from a combination of aerial photography, satellite photography, topographical and standard maps. Each pattern is generated using images from a specific year: 1900, 1930, 1945, 1960, 1980 and 2000. Each station houses one time-map.
