Wave Form

I once found a parachute caught on a barbed-wire fence. It was partially covered with snow and had only recently become visible. I was on a bike ride when I discovered it, so I came back for it later with my truck. The lines had been cut, which brings up questions about how it came to be where I found it. I’m guessing the original owner cut this tangled one away and used a back-up chute to finish the jump safely. Using box fans I filled the parachute with air lengthwise. Because of its blue color and the rippling effect of air moving underneath I thought of it as a wave. This is just one more method for contriving a wave form like the various examples one might find in Renaissance theater sets.
