Magic and Lethal: The Asbestos Memorial
An International Monument Honouring the
Victims of Asbestos Exposure
The Wind Wheel Mobile by Vancouver artist Douglas Taylor is a dynamic kinetic sculpture, driven only by the wind. Rich in symbolism, it is destined to become one of Vancouver’s most iconic images.

This sits at the foot of the “Line of Work” installation that profiles workers killed and injured on the job. It faces Burrard Inlet, where for decades asbestos was loaded into ships for export.
