“The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.” ~P Picasso
This Frank Lloyd Wright designed spire was originally a design component of the Frank Lloyd Wright designed Arizona State Capitol Project from 1957. It was actually erected after his death (in 2004) and is a 125 Ft tall drink of blue water. It looks rather out of place and lonely from afar (at least in my opinion), but comes to life when you stand near and look up, especially when backlit and the sunlight dances off the sides.
My goal here was not to record how it looks as a whole but more to capture its abstract design of shapes and intersecting shades of blue. The yucca spire adds some contrast and for me, reinforces Frank Lloyd Wright’s inspiration of Zen-like organic forms.
