For all the nifty kinetic sculptures we dorks make, sometimes you see an artist who just knows how to get it right. I went to Storm King Art Center on Friday and had a marvelous time walking around the landscape amidst 40′ sculptures. We were playing the “How would this sculpture wander about if it was alive” game. Rounding the hill, we came across a sculpture and said, “Well, that one would just do as it is doing.”
This is what the Storm King website has to say:
“Visitors to the north trail are now greeted by the sight of two tall, slender stainless steel tubes anchored to a motorized stainless steel disk turning slowly, creating the impression of fluid movement. This unique, lyrical, motorized stainless steel sculpture was inspired by the currents and waves of the sea, as experienced by the artist, who is also an experienced-scuba diver.”
We sat and watched it, moving around it to see different angles. Fantastic.
