Flowmotion, 2014

Nancy Lovendahl

Powder-coated Spun Aluminum

Flowmotion is inspired by the science of water dispersion when a swimmer dives into a pool. It relates to basic scientific flow concepts such as the nature of fluids, relative motions, flotation of the human body, skin friction, and drag and lift. Lovendahl portrays a diver penetrating water using color and abstract form made of spun aluminum hemispheres attached to the brick wall. The mural is intended to inspire activated energy for the viewer.
