2008 People Project

To add an historical reference, here is the 2008 People Project.  This first image shows the design on Little Miller’s Bay in relation to Iowa Lakeside Laboratory.  I understand hot chocolate was welcome fuel for participants!

This close-up was taken from the east/southeast.   Before the flight I hadn’t thought about how much interest the shadows would add to the design.  Turtles nest in this area of West Lake Okoboji so they were a natural subject choice.
One of the many activities during Iowa Great Lakes’ Winter Games, January 2008, with major sponsors ArtsLIVE and Iowa Lakeside Laboratory, designer Lakeside’s Jane Shuttleworth, turtle masters Chad Elliott and Marta Barnard, pilot Leading Edge Aviation’s Mike Plathe, still photographer Judy Hemphill
