We are in the Business of Changing the World, 2013

Steel, Bronze and Limestone

Engraved limestone phrases border the quadrants of the courtyard, while stainless steel pipes create a lighted archway beckoning the viewer with both grace and power. The iconic bronze bear and stainless steel bull stand alongside the trajectories created by the pipes, akin to their respective market trends. Six bronze regional commodities icons line the courtyard’s inner circle. The artists constructed the archway from more than 200 pieces of stainless steel pipe with 240 bends that follow one another in perfect alignment, then diverge and extend into distinctive lit tendrils floating in the air.
