Artist: Heath Satow Location: Palmdale Auto Mall, Auto Vista Drive and Carriage Way Roundabout Installation Date: December 2022
Revolution creates a sense of motion through its shape and reflection. The curves of vehicular body shapes are mirrored in the sculpture, and the mirror-polished stainless-steel finish is reminiscent of one of the most common car details: chrome. Just as natural light changes and the colors of the seasons change, these permutations reflect in the art and change it from moment to moment.
The installation is a public-private partnership between the City and the Palmdale Auto Mall. Maintenance of the sculpture and the roundabout will be the responsibility of the Palmdale Auto Mall.
