North Carolina Zoo Proposal

Installation will likely utilize a similar strategy to that I've employed for several other tall sculptures.

The base is designed to be pegged through at a point where once the top is connected the weight remains

distributed to allow a gradual raising of the sculpture to an upright posture. This eliminates the need for craning up the

kinetic elements after the base is vertical. It does require that there be a straight path for the hoist to travel towards the

anchoring pad.



This means the siting of the sculpture would need to be more like that shown in the green box, rather than the red, so the

hoist could travel straight up the boardwalk to the installation pad.
