Sinuous , 2010

by Holland Basham

 

Mediums: Steel

Location: Gene Leahy Mall; Gene Leahy Mall, Farnam Street side, lower level near the water, east of 13th Street

Owner: City of Omaha (Parks Recreation)

Series: Take A Seat

Additional Information: Donated by Holland Basham Architects, Kiewit Building Group, Drake Williams Rebar, Davis J. D. Steel, Great Plains Polymers and Rich Bryen. The team’s inspiration for Sinuous is the lagoon that is the hearbeat of the Mall and the winding paths that are its veins. Just as the water lazily flowers from shore to shore, our seat mimics this rhythmic movement from every angle and reflects the ebb and flow of the surroundings. The undulation of Sinuous allows you to be one with the park and asks you to be a participant in its energy. The team chose rebar for its fragile yet sturdy characteristics; alone, the rebar is weak but together there is strength. It is easily manipulated and can be shaped and molded to imitate the landscape and the human body. The open composition of free-flowing bars implies a form that has a fixed presence but does not dominate the landscape. Sinuous emulates it inspiration-as the water directs it energy to the shore, Sinuous directs the individual to a defined experience. Comprised of 27-Bent, #5 Rebar Profiles, all sandblasted with powder coat finish.
