Art Spot: Can you name the library branch where this public art is located?
This photographic series of 56 photographs of 16 pairs of images
installed on the sides of columns and along one wall provides images of
nature that flip from one to another depending on the viewer's position
and movement. The shifting visual imagery occurs as the viewer is
physically exploring and browsing the library, moving around its shelves
and resources. A metaphor, it suggests that exploring the ideas
discovered within the library also provides multiple viewpoints.
Come back next week for the answer!
The answer to last week's Art Spot:
Leaves of Knowledge by Leslie Fry is located at...
