Sunday Snap: Metalmorphosis

Metalmorphis is a sculpture by the somewhat controversial Czech artist David Cerny. It is located in Whitehall Technology Park in Charlotte, North Carolina. It consists of 7 independently rotating sections of a giant head. The mouth spits out water into a pond. The cool thing about this sculpture [in my opinion] is that it is made of metal and as such reflects the weather.

One a different day, the clouds are reflected in the mirrored glass.

And back to clear and sunny, the head spins in different direction creating a weirdly awesome split.
