Night and Day in the North Woods

The interactive sculpture Night and Day in the North Woods was installed in the Children’s Hospital’s Palliative Clinic. The cabinet holds a diorama of a northern woods scene with a waterfall.

The sun and the moon rotate on the same wheel marking day and night, an owl sleeps in the day and comes to life at night while a bear disappears at night and reappears at the stream during the daytime. The waterfall and fish are on their own crank and can run at all times of the day or night.

Night and Day in the North Woods has two cranks. One turns the waterfall and the fish, the other turns the sun and moon which activate the bear and the owl.
