The Reader

Concept Image

 

10' tall. Stainless steel. 2012

 

This multi-cultural face is composed of stainless steel rods forming a complex wireframe structure that spatially defines the head. His contemplative gaze is fixed, as if reading an unseen book.  The grid units are filled with stainless steel panels forming the ‘skin’ of the face. These panels echo pages in a book that have been unbound and reassembled to form the head. The final finish is a high polish that will reflect the ever changing palette of dynamic skies, surrounding cityscape and the visitors themselves.
