CITIES - sculptures and land art

CITIES sculptures and land art


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

My philosophy is that when making art to be viewed by people who are passing by, like in all traffic situations, a sculpture should not invite the viewer for closer inspection. That does not mean that the essence of art is to be taken away - the mind game. The sculpture projects itself as two dimensional geometric figures along the two axes of approach.

Traffic circle sculpture projects itself as a triangle.
When one approaches the traffic circle, or roundabout, from one of the roads, the sculpture projects itself as a two-dimensional triangle.


When approaching the airport from the west, from a distance, one will see a large triangle, standing on its point. Coming from the airport the same view is experienced.
