Improbable Monument

" I created to power the parachutes."

One of the first assignments I was tasked with as an undergraduate was to create an improbable monument. I figured an over the top fallen soldier-style monument using incredibly pricey materials and requiring 24-7 electricity to keep parachutes rotating around the top would be about as improbable as you get. I used Sketch-Up to design all the parts, and placed the final design into google earth right next to an overpass where very few people would get to see it.

The initial fan image I found online (I'm no longer sure where I found it), and used as my inspiration for the mock-up fans I created to power the parachutes.
