Nothing production related today... just a little inspiration, from some talented artists in my area.
The Port of San Diego just recently updated the 6th installation of Urban Trees. The sculptures are updated annually. My son and I have spent a lot of time with the sculptures–their whimsical names and shapes have sparked our imagination, and I am excited to share them with you.
This video showcases the making of one of the sculptures titled "Elysium," by artists Gretchen Mars & Brian Salmon.
"This sculpture’s design stems from Bonsai trees and lotus flowers and represents the contrasting coexistence of organic versus man-made materials. The twisted metal roots beautifully sprout into laser-cut wood leaves. The process and materials used to create the tree play upon the idea of the evolution between man and technology. "Elysium" is a place or state of perfect happiness."
Here are some pics my son and I took of the last batch, as well as a few from the Harbor/downtown in general (my own urban inspiration):
