Okay, I think my Tiger fever is subsiding. :)

The Rotary Club of Baton Rouge commissioned the sculpture below for its 100 year anniversary in 2015. It was completed in 2018, but due to flood stage water levels could not be installed until 2019. The sculpture by San Francisco-based artist Po Shu Wang, is made up of three stainless steel reflective spheres nestled within each other, with the outer sphere reaching a height of 14 feet. A sensor in the Mississippi River measures the speed of the current and the height of the river. The information bounces back to an antenna that converts it to a sound, allowing the river to “sing”. Visitors to the sculpture can “sing” back to the river by either speaking into one of the spheres or pressing buttons. One of the coolest things to hit Baton Rouge in a long time.
