My World: Public Art - MIrror



A nice walk around Rice University to see the new public sculptures
(before the heat and humidity set in).
This is Mirror by Jaume Plensa.

Mirror is a site specific installation by international artist Jaume Plensa. Mirror features two 10 foot tall figures positioned in conversation with each other.  Up close, their physical forms are an intermingling of white coated marine steel letters from many alphabets. Viewers are provided with an entry point to each figure, where they can physically walk inside the sculpture. One of the new public art works celebrating Rice University's centennial.


Wishing YOU well and much joy!

How very intriguing and so creative! I would love to walk around there and enter the sculptures.
No doubt a place to visit more often?

A unique and interesting concept indeed. I like the way they are painted white like transient pater cuts.

I find this post really interesting as we have exactly the same style of sculptures in Vancouver by English Bay. i will look up the information about them and if I have anything new to add, will show them in my next post. I'm thinking they must be by the same sculptor. Amazing how we can share aspects of our worlds from so far away. Thanks for a great post!

What great sculptures and photos. And please keep your heat and humidity, I don't like hot weather at all. 90 degrees is too much for me on a dry day!
