Artist: Marc Quinn | Spiral Galaxy Conch Shell
There is nothing more beautiful then when art graces the streets, offering inspiration or at the very least conversations to be had for passerby's that stop to notice; and for those who don't, the beauty of our environment leaves a subconscious and psychological imprint whether one realizes or not.
The glorification of the conch and juxtaposition of it finding its new home on urban streets as opposed to the ocean is an interesting one. From sea to land, infused with the noise of the streets and our voices as opposed to familiar ones of the ocean. If we listen carefully, I wonder what secrets this sculptural marvel would reveal. -tM
