Long Description:
According to Seattle Public Utilites web site, ""Salmon Waves" consists of seven stainless steel wave-like sculptures, with light emitting diodes that create the illusion of juvenile salmon in motion. The sculpture’s machined form alludes to waves and salmon, references the precision of the Locks, and visually marks the complex system that is designed to ensure the safe passage of juvenile salmon...through the Locks and into Seattle’s urban waterways. The sculptures are now a key component for the 1.5 million visitors who come to the Ballard Locks each year."
