Life Force

Life Force by David BakalarNew York
“Life Force” by David Bakalar, 1988

New York, September 2008

“The sculpture Life Force looks as if it is growing out of the grassy area on which it sits, its gracefully bending stem supporting a spherically-shaped head. There is a round hole cut through the middle of the sphere, visible from either the north or south of the sculpture. On the north side, a section of the sphere is scooped out, revealing a series of irregularly placed concentric circles moving from the edge of the hole outward to the surface of the sphere. Looking from the south, the hole is bigger, meaning that the hole itself is conical in shape, rather than cylindrical. On this side, the edge of the hole meets the outer surface of the sphere.”

Looks like a huge smoking pipe.
