This wind-driven sculpture combines both science and art. Created for a private PK-12 school in Washington, DC, the three elements represent the students at the Lower, Middle, and Upper Schools. Standing before the sculpture, one becomes aware of the complex dynamic between the "schools." At times, they face each other harmoniously, while other times they face away, standing independently. Occasionally, only one of the "schools" moves, while the others look on in stillness. The variety of movement is symbolic of the human condition, and therefore allows one`s imagination to wander and consider the sculpture as a metaphor for life.
All kinetic sculptures at Rubenstein Studios incorporate a patent-pending novel technology, which requires no maintenance and moves in the lightest of winds.

"The problem of contemporary sculpture and the garden is one which has rankled in my mind for years. It is usually resolved through a process of inversion-that is turning it into sculpture in the garden as against garden sculpture. By that I mean the sculptor takes over the garden as an open exhibition gallery, of which the focus is their creation, to which the world of nature merely provides the frame.The Idea that sculpture is a contributory element to an overall'mise en scene',in which, sometimes its role may be incedental rather than central, has been lost.In this we have seen the betrayall of the great tradition of garden sculpture, one which was unashamed at being decorative or delightful."
