SCULPTURES UNDER CONSTRUCTION - installing weatherproof sculpture
20 mm strips of wood keep the sculpture just enough above the concrete slab in order to enable the bottom to dry after rain showers. After the rapid hardening cement has filled the recesses, the strips can be taken away. Often people who work with weatherproof steel forget that this material needs to dry after getting wet. If you leave it in a wet condition it will continue rusting.
The interested and observing boy has joined in. I think this is a good thing; it gives him the satisfaction of having participated, making the sculpture partly his effort. What a way to having the public participate in public art instead of regarding it as an intrusion into their lives.
