Location: Taken last summer on the Norwood Bridge in Downtown Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

The River Arch, installed in October 1999, in Winnipeg, Manitoba was commissioned by the City of Winnipeg to serve as a symbol of the city at its gateway where two new bridges span the Red River as you enter the downtown area. The asymmetrical parabolic arch made of stainless steel rises up between the bridges. It can be viewed from many vantage points along the river and the roadways.

The River Arch reflects the dynamic, modern Winnipeg in harmony with its past traditions and the natural world that surrounds the city. The textured concrete columns with stone bison bases and capitols rise up about 40 ft. There are gold leafed wheat sheaves that appear to blow like golden flames on top. The image created from the stainless steel “pixels” is taken from a photograph of a harvested field with its parallel furrows that follow the contours of the land. Each of the images: the bison, the wheat and the plowed fields has been translated into standard two inch units, creating an urban, “digital” vocabulary for the natural world.
