CITIES - sculptures and land art


A site specific sculpture for the University of Texas in El Paso, Texas. Site specific sculpture for the city.
Sculpture for the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) roundabout in El Paso - photomontage © Lucien den Arend.

The sculpture was to be constructed from three two-dimensional elements. The spatial presentation is due to the two half circles, projected on two perpendicular planes. At the base they meet each other on the bisectrice of the angle between these planes. The upper ends of the curves are connected by a straight line, which is the hypotenuse of the angle. Because of the two-dimensional character of the composite parts, the sculpture projects itself as a right triangle, standing on a point.

From the direction perpendicular to the axis of the road we are standing on in the photograph above, the sculpture presents itself as an ellipse, which is the projection of the two half circles lying on the perpendicular planes.
