day seventeen

an art piece

Cloud Gate in Millenium Park
by Anish Kapoor
Chicago, Illinois

"What I wanted to do in Millennium Park is make something that would engage the Chicago skyline so that one will see the clouds kind of floating in, with those very tall buildings reflected in the work. And then, since it is in the form of a gate, the participant, the viewer, will be able to enter into this very deep chamber that does, in a way, the same thing to one's reflection as the exterior of the piece is doing to the reflection of the city around."
- Anish Kapoor

I am a huge fan of art within the context of architecture.  I love this sculpture amidst the surrounding architectural structures, and how it reflects and embraces all that is around it.  It really speaks to the designers concept.  I would love to see it in person one day!

Has anyone else seen this in person?  If so, what did you think?
