Working with Cecil Balmond of Arup, Anish Kapoor has unveiled plans for a giant net-like scupture over Middleborough, England.

From the Guardian:

“In many ways scale is a deep, mysterious and wonderful thing, and yet at some levels it gets a bad name. To reinvigorate and re-initiate scale is one of the things we’re about,” said Kapoor.

“There are all the arguments about public art – couldn’t we have spent money on a hospital, say – and all the arguments are correct. But what happens after a while is that these things have the possibility of infiltrating people’s consciousness. You can’t say it’s going to happen, but you can hope it does.”
