"Helix of Life"
This cast concrete sculpture by Canadian artist Ted Bieler is located in front of the Medical Sciences Building at the U of Toronto. The wonderful Brutalist Med Sci building was completed in 1969 and this sculpture referencing DNA was installed in 1971 - a perfect location! I have shown some of Bieler's sculpture before - to see it click here.
40 years later and it is still very modern!
You're right, it's in the perfect location. ;-)
A very cool sculpture~! I'm surprised it's made of concrete instead of some metal?
Happy New Year
Red Pat, you are very fortunate to have all these cool works of Art..just around the corner! :)
Have a wonderful 2011!
I am looking forward to your future postings !
I love all the sculptures that you've shown us this year and this one is just a great.
This is quote nice and really does remind me of diagrams I have seen of DNA!
Happy New Year, RedPat!
Lucia, dear Lucia...this sculpture will be classified as "modern" until it's destroyed in some war, and then used as a pitiful half-ass shelter for a radioactively deformed inbred bastard-child.
