Photo Hunters ~ Strings

For Photo Hunters this week the theme is string(s). I chose to share these photos of this sculpture suspended from the ceiling at the Seattle/Tacoma Airport. It is suspended with wire string. There’s a description of this piece below.

Also worth noting is the suspended sculpture “Landing,” by Ralph Hemlick and Stuart Schechter. Consisting of over 2,800 pewter pieces suspended from 1,050 wires, it depicts a goose landing on water, with a three-dimensional reflection underneath. The landing goose is formed by many small birds, with its reflection created by fish. As an added bonus for those who take the time to look, mixed in throughout the piece are more than fifty different Northwest themed pieces, including umbrellas, the Pike Place Pig, and SAM’s Hammering Man.

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I posted on my blog from 2007-2015 hostage and replaced them with big black and grey boxes with threats. So discouraging…as I’m slowly trying to clean up thousands of posts!
