Image of the Week: Fortescue and LaBianca’s Horn

The following image is a photograph of “Sounding,” a sculpture that is the result of a collaboration between Donald Fortescue (who heads the furniture design program at the California College of the Arts) and artist Lawrence LaBianca.

It’s part of the “Bay Area Now 5” exhibit, currently running through November 16 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. The image accompanied an October 1 article by Zahid Sardar in the San Francisco Chronicle (sfgate.com); the piece stated, “Wire, pebbles and even live sea organisms are employed to make this nostalgic cabriolet-legged, gramophone-like polycarbonate whaling horn ‘speak’ to us.” More information on the exhibit at ban5.org and ybca.org.
