Map showing Len Lye: Water Whirler

This incredible piece of kinetic sculpture by internationally-renowned artist Len Lye was commissioned to celebrate the move into the 21st century. Built after his death, the water feature clearly demonstrates Lye's love of "art in motion".

The 12-minute show allows you to gaze upon the beauty of water moving, as if choreographed, in the wind. The "windicator" light on the specially built pier at the north end of Frank Kitts Park comes on if it is too windy for performances to proceed.

Its performance schedule is: 10am, 11am, 12 noon, 1pm, 3pm and 6pm, 8pm, 9pm and 10pm.
