BACKSTORY

American sculptor Mark di Suvero works with abstract forms on a massive scale. His use of industrial materials and kinetic elements makes these monuments both monolithic and dynamic. Part of the Abstract Expressionist school, di Suvero has won multiple awards, including a Lifetime Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture from the International Sculpture Center. Shown here on San Francisco’s Crissy Field, eight pieces were installed as part of the SFMOMA program On The Go.

BACKSTORY

The Experience Music Project (EMP), Seattle is a museum concept developed by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen. Designed to evoke the fluid energy of music, Frank Gehry’s architecture was inspired by rock n’ roll. One of his early models was even constructed from pieces of electric guitars. The exterior is encased in 21,000 individual stainless steel and painted aluminum shingles. The distinct finishes respond to different light conditions, appearing to change when viewed from different angles.
