Bonnie Meltzer found object sculpture
Oregon Episcopal School Sculpture Project

A wall sculpture for the Science and Math building was designed and constructed by Meltzer with the help of 10 OES students. Almost all of the materials are found objects consisting mostly of computer and musical instrument parts. Found wood lattice became a major part of the design and gave inspiration to the graph theme.
