Inscription(s)

Kandy Sky

Pierre Diamantopoulo ARBS, 2008.

A metaphor for the processes of discovery and learning.
The throwing of ideas in the air, balancing of thought;
the leverage of knowledge and the roller coaster ride of experience, then the bounding energy
of physical education and the performing arts. The sculpture's line describes the fun spirit of
education and the arch is one of its many learning curves.

Painted steel. Fabricated and installed by Art Fabrications.

Financed by Middlesbrough College. With funding assistance from Commissions North,
The Arts Council England North East.
