CITIES - sculptures and land art


Quisnam Vertitur - a proposal for a sculpture on a traffic circle/roundabout

Taking into account that the project was a traffic circle - and the viewer would circulate around the projected sculptural object - I thought that "who is revolving" world be a good motto; so I translated it into Latin: Quisnam Vertitur. To make proposals for public art projects in Finland, one must enter anonymously using a motto.  

Quisnam Vertitur makes use of the two directions of approach to convey the symbiosis of its two geometrical projections.

The kind of art which should be encountered on a traffic circle/roundabout, is what we could call fast-art - art which does not depend on the observer concentrating his attention on what he sees, in order to grasp all the levels which the artist has applied to the work. Fast-art is digested later; sometimes it is necessary to see it another time to understand the idea behind it. In the above work it's all about the movement of the observer.

See what I mean in the following projections of this sculpture.
