i meet richard serra in the lobby -

when we were at two folsom
(pre the move to mission bay)
i loved the daily exposure to the fisher family art collection.
it was almost "blessing" your daily grind,
every day
on every floor.

but by far,
by FAR,
the most powerful and lovely of the pieces
is the enormous raw steel sculpture in the lobby.

richard serra molds space,
and with weight and texture,
with darkness and the feeling of time.

and the best part of this sculpture?

it is hollow. you can walk inside the tower,
and hear your voice echo up six stories.


glad i got a holler in last week.
