Infinity Tower installation

Octahedral Tower

The latest installation at Earth Sanctuary is the 25 ft tall Infinity Tower.  Formed from seven stacked octahedra (one of the Platonic Solids), the tower undulates skyward drawing your eye upward across planes of light and shadow.

Chuck conceived of the idea Рutilizing a 3D printer to fabricate a scale model.  We worked with the talented  guys at Heavy Metal Works to bring it to life. The team (from left to right): Chuck Pettis, Tim Leonard, Duran Laframboise, Brendan McHugh, Matthew Swett, Jacob Rose, and Ryan Wright.

If you want to read more about the project, here’s an article in Whidbey Life Magazine.
