Metalmorphosis | Giant Rotating Heads | Public Art



Metalmorphosis is a 14-ton water fountain that's shaped like a human head. On top of that, the sculpture is made with over 35 steel layers that can independently rotate 360 degrees to re-arrange its face and trip your brains out.
The mirrored water fountain is made by Czech sculptor David Černý and is located in Whitehall Technology Park in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Metalmorphosis, la scultura fontana alta circa 7,6 m, é stata progettata nel 2007 dallo scultore Ceco David Černý e si trova di fronte al Whitehall Technology Park a Charlotte nella Carolina del Nord, diventando una installazione permanente pubblica negli Stati Uniti.
La gigantesca testa rotante è costituita da piastre multiple che ruotano in modo intermittente per creare una testa-fontana tridimensionale che eroga acqua dalla bocca in una grande base fontana ogni volta quando gli strati coincidono perfettamente dopo la roteazione a 360°. La costruzione della scultura che ha utilizzato circa 14 tonnellate di acciaio inossidabile, incorpora l'ingegneria meccanica ed il computer, essendo dotato di un programma appositamente scritto che controlla via internet i motori incorporati all'interno della struttura.
