Dropped Bowl With Scattered Slices and Peels

Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen
Dropped Bowl with Scattered Slices and Peels, 1990
Concrete, aluminum, cast resin, computerized fountain
Government Center at Open Space Park
This monumental outdoor sculpture with multi-dimensional sections, represents
an imaginary moment in time when a huge bowl of orange slices and peels
drops to the ground and shatters. The artwork includes eight bowl
fragments in cast concrete with an overall weight of 124,000 lbs., four peels
in steel plate with painted surfaces, and five orange sections executed in
reinforced cast resin. Oldenburg is best known for his gigantic food
constructions and his daily object soft sculptures.

Wendy Wischer Liquid Measures detail

Inspired by the pattern of the Golden Mean, this installation makes reference to the wind and water currents while reflecting the surroundings of the environment and those within it. Liquid Measures, uses Blue Moon Waterglass tiles containing a “waterglass” surface with a blue color. During the day, the sun reflects off these tiles as well creating beautiful light patterns around the surrounding sidewalk area similar to a disco ball yet these tiles will create organic light shapes and also be far softer and muted since the tiles are not made out of mirror.
