Building expression

When the colors of spring came bursting out of their buds last month, Yellow Springs contractor Bruce Parker got inspired to grow some color of his own on the sawed off beast of a honeysuckle bush on West Davis Street. He spray painted recycled fans and drilled them into the stumpy branches, dressed with some leftover corrugated drain tile for textured stems. On a very windy Saturday, the petaled wheels of his Whimsical Recycled Kinetic Art were spinning in ways other flowers just don’t do.
