The suspended sculpture, Mobius Band, encircles a section of a 92-foot long recycled old growth Douglas fir. A 12-gauge steel band measuring 12 inches wide by 40 feet long is twisted into a mobius loop, creating a 14-foot diameter band. The Mobius Band was created by Seattle artist Buster Simpson, and was made from the same type of band saw which once milled wood in the 1880’s at the nearby historic Blakely Mill. The quote that appears on the mobius strip “Tug on anything and you will find it connected to everything else” (a quote attributed to John Muir) is hand-lettered on the steel.
