University of Florida - Red beam sculpture


I was unable to find any information on this sculpture located near the Museum of Natural History at the University of Florida. There is another similar sculpture on campus, created by John Henry, which is constructed of yellow aluminum beams sticking up in a random formation - the students call it "French Fries" as it resembles a package of McDonald French fries.

Doubtless, this red beam sculpture has some meaning, but I don't what that might be.  It's not a cross so you can cross that off your list.  :)

Actually it looks a bit like a damaged Cross of Lorraine! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cross_of_Lorraine

Love your treatment of the photo!

I like the sense of balance.

A kid's game of "pick-up-sticks" maybe? It made me think of one I've seen here but I can't remember where now.

I get a little cross when I cannot figure out the sculptors intent. There are some similar pieces of art on the St. Thomas University campus in St. Paul, so I'd better take another looks to see who the artist might be.

Not exactly a Bernini, but it is not so bad!

I like how you've made the red stand out in this otherwise B&W photo.

I wouldn't have noticed the effects if EG hadn't mentioned. Very striking! I'm sure it's a construction for skate boarders. Surprised you didn't get one grabbing air off it. ;-)

I like this picture! The sculpture might mean nothing at all. Maybe it's just there to get ones imagination going. Or maybe just so you could make this cool picture.
