A pleasing post and sculpture description by Terra Casa, our member company in Poland, esp. as read from Chicago today.

Opis rzeźby "Dotyk Kalifornii" nadesłany przez autora Piotra Sobczyka.

Dwie formy skierowane do nieba, wykonane są z wypolerowanej na lustro stali nierdzewnej, która odbija wszystko dookoła. Spoglądając na błyszczące w słońcu figury, można dostrzec zarówno panoramę osiedla, jak i niebo ponad blokami. Rzeźba zdaje się być żywym tworem. Przypomina liście, które starają się zbliżyć do siebie. Odbiorca może odnieść wrażenie, że są to kiełki roślin, które dopiero co wybiły się z ziemi. Zważywszy jednak na gabaryty figur, liczące 3,6 m, można domniemać, że są to w pełni dojrzałe byty. Rzeźba stale zmienia swój wygląd. Odbija i lekko zniekształca panoramę otaczającej ją architektury miasta. Promienie słońca załamują się na niej i nadają jej niesamowite barwy o każdej porze dnia. Prosta forma monumentów stara się nie zakłócać otaczającej przestrzeni, jednak nie pozostaje jej obojętna.
