"Shared Dreams"

Black Steatite

1 figurative sculpture 8' H

1 figurative sculpture 6' H

1 water stone, 1 cup stone, 1 standing stone

COMMISSION:  National Institutes of Health (NIH)

Building 10, Blood Donors Dept.

Bethesda, Maryland, USA

 

This Public Art Environment Group Sculpture was originally designed to fill the entire

22' x 27' inner courtyard of this building wing.  Two corridors bound this

courtyard.  One is used by the Patients while the other is used exclusively by the Donors.

The two figurative sculptures represent these two groups.  No hint is given which is which.

Other sculptural features include: a passive Water Stone that collects rain and snow.  It is not

plumbed and requires no special maintenance; the Standing Stone was chosen for it's sharp

 jagged forms to represent the energies within this site; and a Cup Hole Standing Stone

carved as an echo of prehistoric cup stones created to catch rain used for healing ceremonies.

 

This group sculpture is now sited outside the Entrance of the Blood Donors Section

because the Courtyard has been enclosed to house new equipment.
