Making the rounds of the design blogs is this absolutely amazing public sculpture of a giant, playful wind chime. Artist, Mark Nixon has created the Chimecco bridge chime. It’s a 600-pipe kinetic sculpture that hangs below a wooden bridge surrounded by woods. Chimecco brings music to a beautiful natural habitat. The sculpture is part of the Sculpture by the Sea exhibition in Aarhus, Denmark.
"Chimecco hides silently beneath the bridge in the forest until activated by human movements or the wind causing it to sing, dance and play with the senses."~ Mark Nixon
As people pass over the bridge, the chime gently sings. Chimecco is intended to be hidden, but the beautiful shape of the sculpture, lush location, and harmonious sounds, must draw many to the bridge.
