Polygonum 2.0 by Belgian artist Tom Dekyvere is a large geometrical rhizome construction of rope and reflective triangles lit with multi-colored LEDs. Consisting of over 13,000 feet of rope, the artwork will be installed above the Arizona channel between Soleri Bridge and Marshall Way Bridge, and will extend to wrap the Marshall Way Bridge. Dekyvere's public art practice explores the evolving and often unexpected bond between technology and the natural world. Polygonum 2.0 showcases the relationships between the organic and artificial structures specific to the landscape of Scottsdale Waterfront and the people who inhabit it. Polygonum 2.0 will be on-view at the Channel and Marshall Way Bridge throuhg May 1, 2017.

Polygonum 2.0 has been commissioned by Scottsdale Public Art for Channel Convergence 2017. As a WAVE: Light + Water + Sound will be sent to Breckenridge, Colorado for its 2017 art festival, Polygonum 2.0 .

Togo geography - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
As it advances towards the interior the territory gains in height, so that in the center of the country is a wide plateau. To the south, Togo has 56 km of coastline along the Gulf of Benin, a sector of the Gulf of Guinea in the Atlantic Ocean.

you observe it like an ornament while it consumes you / it colors your aging with atmospheric language / complex calendar of the loss / that flows from textile extremities / in An invasive spin of frequencies that shatter silhouettes / submerges photosynthetic smells / reflects the weight of sound over the origin of perspective / reacts like a trap before the tracings of position / fragments of peace like adornments of war

As ornament while you consume / color with your atmosphere atmosphere your oldness / complex calendar of losses / flowing from textile extremities / in invasive cycle of frequencies that break silhouettes / dips smell of photosynthesis / sound reflex weighs on perspective origin / reacts as a trap before Stroke posture / peace fragments as war ornaments

Although you have not shown it / you need to wrinkle the map / I take it in red from an axis / I want to join each point that is stretched in solid structure / to deform concrete space / like origami / the knot as a political system / fragments of peace that are extracted as crystals / makes sense each division of rope

I rotate it to define the state of terror / the leakage from the edge that transcends into ruin / learn control

what is broken to define the state of terror / spill of the edge that transcends in rubble / learning of space control / how to learn without cutting ropes / how to learn without dropping the shadows of colors

I stretch blue cords / towards the extreme left / perspective creates a new communion of meanings / sky-water Like a blue-green-purple-yellow-brown-reflectio N / bicolor scale arriving at the top of the floor / I fold it / I unfold it / I unite it / I drop it / I change its properties / I change its axis / I transform it into liquid / I cut it / I liquefy it / I spill it over the people

jalo strings in blue / towards extreme left / perspective creates new communion of senses / sky-water as blue-green-purple-yellow-brown- reflex / bicolor scale to get back to the top of the plant / the double / unfold / the one / the remove / change of properties / I change of axis / I transform it into liquid / short / liquid / I make it fall over People / on the water
