The interaction of the work with its environment is an important part of what makes Turner’s corner so appealing. Movement of objects and materials yields an active sense of energy about the space that complements the changing growth patterns of the pocket gardens. A number of objects such as fan blades and pinwheels, commercial fringe and flags, and Christmas tinsel, catch the breeze at the corner and animate the area in a quiet manner. The fluttering leaves of a banana tree add subtle kinetics to the installation.
