It's a work of art powered by the wind.

The 400 mechanical reeds that make up the Cedar Points Reeds kinetic sculpture piece move based on real-time windspeeds from Colorado's Cedar Point Wind Farm.

The power generated at the farm is represented by the illuminated reeds.

Conditions are always current because the sculpture downloads the latest wind data every minute from the farm, which resides about 170 km away from the sculpture.

The reeds can be seen silently swaying at 15th St. and California St.in downtown Denver, CO, created by Breakfast Studio, described on its website as a "new media artist collective focused on creating forward-looking software-and-hardware-driven artworks that connect viewers to far-away places through interactive experiences, and tell powerful stories about our rapidly-changing world."
