Percorso di Vita
304 Stainless Steel, Fiberglass-Reinforced Cement
Percorso di Vita, representing the cyclical nature of life, is the first in the “Static” series. It is constructed for outdoor exhibition from stainless steel and acid-dyed cement. As is appropriate for its locale, the sculpture is not enclosed in a sphere, and is fixed in place. Interaction is achieved by either tracing one’s eyes or fingers along the 436′-long pathway. The surface is sanded along its serpentine route to enhance its feeling of movement. There is no formal beginning or ending, thus the audience can choose any place to begin their travel. Eventually, after changing planes 252 times, one would end up at the same place they started. The path structure is 48″ in diameter.
This sculpture is non-moving.
