Sculpture consists of three components: Anemometer (wind speed sensor), tube unit and a processor unit. The anemometer is to be anchored to a concrete block and placed outdoors to respond to the wind. The anemometer is linked to the processor unit which is mounted to a wall and meant for indoor display only. The tube unit is mounted to the wall above the processor unit. In the tube unit is a yellow cedar landscape with a map style image of the Assiniboine and Red rivers as they join in Winnipeg. The image is carved into the wood and not painted.
