The September 2016 installation date has been rescheduled for this spring. A broken foot has postponed the landing and mission of this machine!
Bio Scenic Travel Machine, Cyto-Squad to land at Silverwood Park, St. Anthony, Minnesota in May!
The Bio Scenic Machine will offer a kaleidoscope optical instrument to discover and explore the ecology and environment of Silverwood Park – mirrored reflections of plants, microscopic images of organisms, and other biological specimens – through the seasons.
The Travel Machine is here to research and contain a collection and record of life on earth – the natural world of Silverwood Park – and share it with visitors of the park and “unspecified” recipients.
Thank you to the panel- Eileen Cohen/Park Art Educator and Exhibitions Coordinator, Amy Toscani/Minneapolis Sculptor, Alyssa Baguss/Arts Programming Coordinator, Tom Moffatt and additional park District staff.
