Some of you asked what the gray things behind Cornerstone's pollinator garden in my last post are. Are they trees? Or netting to keep away birds?
Well, those were good guesses - but it actually is some artwork. The gardens feature a lot of art throughout. Some of them are there temporarily and some find a permament home here.
This particular artwork is by Andy Cao and Xavier Perrot and called "White Cloud".
It's a sculpted cumulus cloud that hovers over an undulating landscape of crushed granite, oyster shell and recycled glass. The clouds are crafted with swirls of wire mesh supported by a series of slender posts.
But that's not all! The clouds are enhanced by thousands of clear cut crystals that catch the light from morning to moonlight.
It is quite the show!
I found it pretty mesmerizing
Andy Cao and Xavier Parrot are the same artists who created the "Red Lantern" in Cornerstone - some of you still might remember this:
