Interactive before it became a popular word, Tom Wochina’s pyramid-shaped sculpture is a scale model of the Great Pyramid of Cheops in Egypt. Visitors experience a powerful felling when standing up top and can actually hear sounds “played” by wind rushing a cross the metal pipes. For those not in a hurry to get anywhere, driving by fro opposite directions is an optical delight, as the sides of the pipes are painted in stripes of color, making the piece disappear and the reappear in a different color as one drives by.
