Wind Direction

The wind sock in the airport is a kind of instrument for measuring wind direction. When wind blows, the wind sock would be bulged into vertebral shape by the wind to indicate the direction and size of wind. The stonework is consisted of four wind socks like flags flying rhythmically in the air and the four wind socks are aligned from the bigger to the smaller. Wind direction is one of the earliest methods for ancient people to know the nature. It could provide human being the swiftest way to know the capricious natural code. This stonework tries to remind people, never be too complacent for modern technological development. Nevertheless, we should treat the environment with modest attitude, then, we can get along with the nature.
