"Tug on anything and you will find it connected to everything else."


The suspended sculpture, Mobius Band, hugs a section of an 85’ long recycled beam located in the Great Hall at the Puget Sound Environmental Learning Center on Bainbridge Island, WA. A 12-gauge steel band measuring 12” wide by approximately 40’ long which, when twisted into a mobius loop, creates a 14’ diameter band. Mobius Band is made from the same type of saw which might have milled this historic beam at the nearby Blakeley Mill. With a continuous edge, this saw blade is transformed into a symbol of sustainability, as it makes its graceful encirclement of the beam.


"This mobius path brings us back where the beginning is never ending."

- M. Brown.
