About This Piece

Kelton Osborn was intrigued by the rich history of the lake, and gravitated toward the remaining wood piles (that typically are concealed under water) from the original historic swimming pier. The concept was to recreate the “presence” of the historic pier with visual markers. Hand formed metal buoys are tethered to each pile to create the “structure” of the pier. “Suspended” between the buoys are vessels that contain water lilies that have been cultivated from the original lilies of the lake. People are encouraged to “inhabit” the pier by entering the viewing platform. Once on board, it is possible to look across the surface of the lily pads and recall the presence of the original pier.
