it’s done

Well, mostly. It’s installed and it’s on public display. The official debut is Saturday, but I mean, it’s public art, so you can go look at it now if you’re in Reynoldstown, specifically off Kirkwood Avenue and directly behind the Stein Steel factory (which I always imagine is just full of shirtless steelworkers hammering on anvils, but maybe that’s just me). I’d still like to add a few things (as a professional sports anti-fan, I still lack any Braves or Falcons memorabilia for Turner Field & the Georgia Dome), and chances are it’s a certainty that I’ll be tweaking it and repairing it over the next three months. But here it is:

Another vantage point, as the direct perspective tends to fade into two dimensions:

A close-up of Little Five Points / Edgewood (my own neighborhood is littered with the refuse of sweetgum trees, so I added them earlier today):

I added Oakland City at the last minute (lots of old hangars and steel-ensconced warehouses there):

I still have a lot of work to do, in my opinion. But it’s now available to be scrutinized by the public eye, which is both exhilarating and frightening.

  1. Wow, Geoff! I love it!! i can’t wait to see it in person. How did the moss solution work out for you? I remember awhile ago you were saying it was giving you some trouble. Is it growing the way you wanted?

  2. It’s finally time we learned something again!
