"Swept Away"

Denver's RTD system includes a program called Art-n-Transit, where commissioned statues, murals, and art installations are included at over 30 light rail and bus stations in the Denver metro area. The Dayton light rail station features a piece entitled Windswept, created by Christopher Weed and dedicated in 2006. Windswept is the largest and most visible of all of the Art-n-Transit installations, visible not only from the parking lot and nearby streets, but even from the opposite side of I-225 (which the station is accessible from). Windswept consists of a series of steel poles of varying heights, topped with red ceramic balls, that line the pedestrian bridges leading up to the light rail platforms. As visitors walk along the bridges, the art seems to dip and sway with them in an optical illusion conveying movement.
