Collaborative Project
Stainless steel railings, twenty bronze sculptures on railing posts
Whistler, BC, 1998

Jennifer Macklem
and Kip Jones

On the bridge, there are several more sculptures- a functional compass; a topographically accurate depiction of Whistler Mountain and valley; Hawks Heads and Lynx skulls; geometric and natural shapes; bird forms; an enlarged insect; a viewfinder (with a fat man waving); orbiting planets and a spinning maze.

Through their diversity, these various sculptures pay homage to the natural world, while rendering possible representations of what can be seen through a viewing device. The art project becomes a series of possible experiences for pedestrians, where they can actively and playfully investigate their surroundings through their own observations.
