In Bondi, Australia, at the annual Sculpture by the Sea festival, David McCracken had a piece on view entitled Diminish and Ascend. The steps made from aluminum jut out on the side of a hill facing the sea and plays with perspectives to make it look like a never-ending path into the sky. Take a look at photos of the piece in different lighting and at various angles below… Photo credit: Paul David (front image), the rest specified at the bottom of image. Via My Modern Met.
