A Wind Instrument is a wind sculpture that consists of multiple clusters of domed pennies hanging from branches throughout the trees bordering the BeltLine trail. The penny is generally considered a nuisance, inconvenient, and even worthless. Through a repetitive process of altering this common material, original associations are lost. Multitudes of pennies are strung in patterns mimicking musical scores and creating a variety of notes. When hanging, the copper domes tap against each other and create a soft sound in response to the wind.
