Elements CNU

ELEMENTS in white Carrara marble, 12 ton and 4 meter high at the entrance of CNU, Christopher Newport University, Virginia, USA.

2006, I was inviter by Newport News Public Art Foundation to compete for the monument symbolizing the vision of the university.

ELEMENTS expresses the fine balance between the students ’the new wind/the new ideas’ and the university with its history and its competence and capability.

A group of art students at CNU were active involved in the creation process by visiting Studio Sem in Pietrasanta, Italy making a photo blog showing the different phases of the process from the quarry, creating the sculpture, maneuver, transport and installation. The students took an important role inaugurating the sculpture October 2008.
