A few of you have begun paying attention to public art and sculpture on our campus. I promised a couple of flickr stream links which come with some contextual narrative. Here you go:
If you end up writing about them, a few thoughts:
Try to pay attention to the relationship between the sculpture and the space surrounding it. How does the presence of the sculpture change the architecture or landscape? How does the public interact with the work? What kind of environment does the sculpture create? Does it have an ironic relationship to the environment or does it extend motifs already part of buildings or greenscape? Does it have political or philosophic import or does it engage us strictly at the level of our senses?
