Transient — Anonymous Drifter


Force (detail), mass times acceleration, The Brilliance Project, Palo Alto, CA

As a famous drifter once said: “May the Force be with you.”

The equation of force is cut into the steel sculpture Brilliance that is on display at the Palo Alto Art Center. There are 6 similarly shaped steel sculptures spread about the campus of the art center and library. Each has a central message  surrounded by fragments of text collected by the artist from Palo Alto residents in their native language. As a whole the collection represents the diversity of the city.

If you are up to it, follow this link to the Transient Force web page where Arnold Steiner plays Galactic Cluster — electron music of transient force.
