Levitating on Soothing Wind Notes in Chicago, Illinois
If you're looking for a Zen-like sanctuary in which to meditate, sequester yourself here at the base of one of downtown Chicago's tallest skyscrapers. American artist, Harry Bertoia, created this unique Sounding Sculpture in the plaza garden of the Aon Center, transporting urbanites out of the gritty center of Chicago's Loop to the tranquil plains of a Midwestern wheat field. The sculpture’s comb of wiry bronze rods produce subtle musical sounds when touched by any one of the Windy City's ubiquitous breezes. Low and delicate tonal vibrations evoke Mohave desert wind gusts or gentle harp strings. In the midst of the urban jungle, this is the solemn respite you need and the perfect haven to get in your oms.
