Rain Gates is a sculptural landscape environment about passage. It is about the physical passage of the viewer from one point in the landscape to another higher one, or lower one depending upon access point. The vertical distance to be traveled is actually about twenty feet, i.e., a considerable climb and/or descent. More Info...
