cool beat and fantastic nyc images.
while aimlessly wandering the streets of new york recently, i stumbled up mel kendrick's markers on display in madison square park.
it has been written that the five large sculptures were formed by layering black and white concrete to create a fossil-like surface texture with additional inspiration coming from the marble found in gothic italian cathedrals and the simplest methods of marking: placing one object on top of another.
the installation is fun for kids as they can climb on the markers and play hide & seek. it kind of reminds me of stone henge in prison stripes and offers the most wonderful see-thru views, which is great for the rest of us.
