Through the use of three perforated steel surfaces, Peripatete establishes a permeable field of experience. Along the Beltline, the wanderer or explorer is assumed as the baseline subject. The piece is activated by mobile, peripatetic vision. The perforated forms sit within, and offer multifarious glimpses to, the surrounding landscape. The forms and views contort as the subject moves through the piece. The laser-cut carbon steel, staked into the ground with railroad spikes, references the past life of the Beltline while projecting aspirations of its future.
