Wind sculptures

A wind sculpture is a sculpture that changes shape based on the strength and direction of the wind.

I first encountered a wind sculpture when my wife and I visited Buenos Aires about a year and a half ago. The Floralis Generica at the United Nations Plaza in Buenos Aires not only has petals that close in times of high wind, but also changes shape based on the rising and setting of the Sun.

Here’s a video with more examples of wind sculptures.
