Air Force Memorial, Arlington, VA

The newest memorial in the Washington, D.C. area sits on a rise above the Pentagon; three upward swoops of metal symbolizing flight. I am fascinated by the changeability and the almost ephemeral quality of this structure. From some angles, you see only two arcs. Depending upon the sun and weather conditions, the arcs can be dark silhouettes, shining and silvery, or barely discernible against the sky. Imagine a multitude of sky-colored fabrics and some curved seams...in my future there may be quilts inspired by this memorial.
