RIVER RUN 2002
Sciatto River Footbridge, Ohio University, Athens, Ohio, USA.
20‘ H x 16’ W x 40’ L.
Stone, steel, lighting.
Sculptural pedestrian bridge crosses over the dry, diverted river bed, adjacent to the Life Sciences Building at Ohio University. Native stone rises out of the river bed and creates seating areas on either side of the bridge. Steel sculptural elements echo the once roaring river that was re-channeled to prevent flooding. In the evening these sculptural forms, lit from within, continue to echo the wave patterns of the once roaring river.
