I saw the art work today and thought of Deer/Elk Antlers first.


Allow me to repost Jennifer's comment from another thread here since we might have some dialog almost a year after the art installation:

This sort of reminds me of "the birds" at the hospital. I saw the conceptuals of it, and they did look like a flock of birds, and I thought it looked pretty cool. But something got lost in the translation. Keep in mind that I am an artist, too, so I'm sensitive to the creative process...

When the art was installed, many passerbys thought it was a grove of silver trees with big silver trunks, or even antlers.

I'll offer an unsolicited opinion--I think the installation would be much more birdlike if the thick "stands" supporting each 'flock' were darkened with antiqued bronze color, (like WAY dark brown), so the bulky stands would recede. I think then the bird section would look separate and much lighter. 'Probably not the artist's fault, I think the whole thing turned into an ordeal, just to get it installed and the foundations for the piece approved. Maybe the original specs for the stands proved not to be thick enough to properly support the birds at the top.
