Metalmorphosis Sculpture by David Cerny

“Metalmorphosis” by Czech artist David Cerny is a 30 foot tall stainless steel sculpture of a giant head in Charlotte, North Carolina. The 14 ton sculpture (and fountain) is divided into horizontal slices that slowly rotate out of sync with one another (as seen in this video by Ferris Photography).

Bonus:  Streams

Bronze peeing statues made by David Cerny at the entrance of the Franz Kafka Museum in Prague. 

 

“The stream of water writes quotes from famous Prague residents.

Visitors can interupt them by sending SMS message from mobile phone to a number, displayed next to the sculptures. The living statue then ‘writes’ the text of the message, before carrying on as´╗┐ before.”
