At Silo City on the summer solstice, visitors encounter a field of translucent pennants, evocative of flags, sails, or clotheslines. Facing south to maximize sunshine and shadow, individual pennants are sewn from 12 gauge tinted plastic tinyl fabric, and slide open and closed along a metal tension wire. The opening and closing of the pennants invites unexpected interaction between visitors, silo city, and the sun. The result is a double image: one created by the shifting arrangement of flags, the other created by the shadows as the light of the sun traces its course. No two visitor experiences are identical.
