'Synergy (stainless Steel Big Water sculpture)' by Barton Rubenstein
Description: Massive Stainless Steel Water Features sculptures statues fountains For Sale for Outside Outdoors Exterior display in the Garden, Yard, Public Space or park by the remarkable Barton Rubenstein. He says this.. "Situated at the centre of the common space of University of Connecticut Waterbury, this dramatic water sculpture accentuates its smooth curving surfaces and sheets of water that glide off its edges. The main thrust of the design is that each of the five water sculptures represents a human form. From afar, these human forms appear similar. However, closer inspection reveals unique attributes, including different heights, shapes, orientation, and water patterns. After all, humanity is the collection of people with many similarities, but each is miraculously unique. With the continuous movement of water and its reflective surfaces, each of the sculptures will take on a different personality depending on the weather and time of day. This commission was awarded as a result of a National Competition.
'Carpe Diem (Big stainless Steel Kinetic statue)' by Barton Rubenstein
Description: This wind-driven sculpture combines both science and art. Created for a private PK-12 school in Washington, DC, the three elements represent the students at the Lower, Middle, and Upper Schools. Standing before the sculpture, one becomes aware of the complex dynamic between the "schools." At times, they face each other harmoniously, while other times they face away, standing independently. Occasionally, only one of the "schools" moves, while the others look on in stillness. The variety of movement is symbolic of the human condition, and therefore allows one`s imagination to wander and consider the sculpture as a metaphor for life.
