Installation by Mariska & Diederik Zevenbergen. A steel cable was strung between two buildins at our site and the large vulture-like steel structure ran freely over the cable, a flight of over 20 metres.
Aurora is balanced on the cable by means of the great wings. It runs on a wheel on top of the cable. The whole moves very elegantly when the cable sags under its weight. Sideway swings look very spectacular.
The installation was baptised by fitting six torches to the wings. These were lighted in the fading light of an early very cloudy evening. They gave a magnificent effect when Aurora was launched on the cable.
