Tornado Touch Down, 2010

Outside the travel centre in the Swedish town of Borås, a twisted steel pipe tornado has touched down. The sculpture was commissioned by the city of Borås and reflects on the town’s history as a centre of textile industry and its current rapid transformation. The sculpture is a node for travelers passing by, and gives them an opportunity to sit down at the Tornado’s yarn base and look up through a cloud of confusion and unraveled thread.
