Photographer's Note

This is "The Drop" at Canada Place in Vancouver.
According to the group of artists called "inges idee" "the 18-meter sculpture in the form of a giant drop alludes to the elements of rain and the ocean, which are omnipresent in Vancouver.
The work’s field of tension derives from its balancing on one point of its lower surface. The resulting diagonal orientation puts it into a immediate dialog with the architecture. It relates directly to the striking supporting pillars of the Congress Center and, on the square shaped like a ship’s bow, triggers associations of a gigantic figurehead fallen from the sky."
I made the picture from the floor looking up to the top. I was fascinated by the really interesting shape and almost perfect surface. I was surprised to learn that the artists are from Germany.
thanks for looking
