Listening and viewing device

This 1994 work by Andrew Drummond, incorporating kinetic elements, is located on Druid's Hill in the Wellington Botanic Garden. It consists of a shrine-like frame with a suspended copper cone, which moves and makes sounds in the wind. The artist commented, 'I really like looking at it when it is windy as anything, because it swings round in there, and it looks like it wants to jump out. It's gyroscopic. It has a topsy turvy feeling.'
