2024 Symposium May 9 - June 1

Soft Cones

ARTIST: Taylor Apostol 

HOME: Boston. Ma, USA

LOCATION: Mine Falls Park entrance on Stadium Drive

ARTIST STATEMENT:

“Loosely modeled after the Eastern White Pine cone (Pinus Strobus), these three sculptures are in various states of opening and closing. When the humidity is low, the cones are more open and release their winged seeds.

 The brightly flocked cones serve as directional markers, pointing the viewer along the pathway towards “Memorial to Midday” and “Counts from Ten on Fish Fingers”
