A fun sculpture by Durham-based artist Andrew Preiss; read all about him at his website here.
A truly perfect afternoon: sunshine, balmy temperature, light breeze … and colorful sights!
What is this? You may well ask … it’s a spherically shaped bud-vase full of water that for some reason has lots of bubbles in it … which may or may not have to do with the way the light coming through it (the bud vase) has refracted itself into those short rainbow spectrum lines arranged around its circumference! The green bit discernable inside the bud vase is the end of a plant cutting in the process (hopefully) of forming roots.
The Silver Stone coffee and tea sign in this photo has the look of a renovated survival from the 1930s … and maybe it is? There’s also a small cafe called Silver Stone cafe just around the corner. As for the mural above it with all the colors of the rainbow and the words “The Sock,” I don’t know what it’s all about at all!
