Description

“Night and Day” Square Creating a sculpture which would be played permanently in public place it is always a challenging one, having in mind many reasons where you could go wrong. Using an ordinary object such as spectacles to create something out of ordinary, imaginative and somewhat surreal, will a continuous line imitating nature, some kind of elegant tendril coming out of the ground, we will result on having an object with an organic feel. By changing the size we are changing the meaning of this ordinary object of great importance. We are celebrating its importance. We have a monument dedicated to an object rather than a historical event or a person! The size and use of materials, conventional and latest technology, including; solar panels and recycling materials would make this object a living sculpture, inviting and “accidentally” functional. We will look at spectacles rather than looking through them, look at the sun under them, and use their shadows to cool down on a sunny day. At night enjoy the company of friends and others under inviting illuminating light which was accumulated during the day.
