  • It was in an office park, off the beaten path. I love oddities like this so when we started planning our North Carolina trip, this was one of my to-dos. Very peaceful to sit and relax and watch this g...  read more »
  • The original version in Prague is pretty cool (you can find it on YouTube, search for "K On Sun"). This one doesn't do the same movements (only moves in sections, not independent pieces), and in the two years I've worked here it's been broken more than it has worked. Great idea, if they can fix it, it would be pretty cool.
  • Metalmorphosis was conceived by Count Riprand Arco, Founder and Chairman of American Asset Corporation, when the Count set out to design a visually stunning focal point for AAC's 200-acre office park development - Whitehall Corporate Center. With it's grand plaza, Whitehall Corporate Center presented an opportunity to create something monumental - a sculpture that would inspire both native Charlotteans and visitors alike. Count Arco approached internationally renown Czech Sculptor, David Cerny. Cerny's idea for a one-of-a-kind sculpture was conceived, crafted and executed from its original concept, a testament to his technical savvy and his talent as an artist. Cerny says, "I was thinking about doing something as a centerpiece. I knew I wanted to employ water from the beginning." In addition to the water element, Cerny's design also incorporates a complex infrastructure and choreographed movement on a magnificent scale, creating a beautiful synergy of form and function.
  • When we went to see this mirrored water fountain by Czech sculptor David Černý, randomly located in the middle of a cool water installation itself amidst a new industrial park complex, it was neither working nor fully assembled, but was still impressive and a great unique photo opp. Would like to see it in its full glory, however. Maybe on a subsequent visit to the Queen City!
  • This is a supposedly great metal moving sculpture. However I have stopped by a few different times and I have never seen it working properly.
  • A really cool sculpture to see in charlotte
