A Tall Story

India Today - - BUZZ WORDS -

Metal gets a swish makeover in the hands of San Diego-based stu­dio artist Christo­pher Puzio. Known for cre­at­ing sculp­tural won­ders, his de­signs draw on cos­mic in­spi­ra­tion. His lat­est pub­lic work in­stal­la­tion, Is­land Ar­bor, ad­ja­cent to Tom Ham’s Light­house on Har­bor Is­land, is mainly a study of ge­om­e­try, pat­tern and struc­ture found within na­ture. De­vel­oped to meet the owner’s idea of a trel­lis ad­ja­cent to the restau­rant on the bay and also as part of the port’s one per cent for art pol­icy, the alu­minium ed­i­fice is an in­ter­est­ing take on the shaded canopy and is made out of 2,800 sin­gu­lar welded el­e­ments. How’s that for al­ter­ing the land­scape of the Bay area?
