And you have no idea how much I love that the artists didn’t give it some pretentious title but rather called it what it is.I went out with my camera at lunch yesterday and as I approached, I realized I had no real opinion about the sculpture. I thought “it looks a bit dated – like some industrial design done in the ’70s” but otherwise, it didn’t speak to me. Then I got closer and started to look through my lens at it – and I was absolutely floored by the repeated patterns and the converging lines. Every step I took around this sculpture gave me a new and interesting view.
The nearby plaque says the sculpture “mirrors the spiral motif common in nature” – and I can see that. Looking at details of the work I was particularly reminded of photos I had seen of The Wave rock formation on the Arizona/Utah border.
I went from not really caring to being a huge fan of this sculpture – and all because I stopped for a few minutes to take it in. I need to do that more often.
