Charlotte – Metalmorphosis Face Reflections

Metalmorphosis, in Charlotte, is a modern art piece by artist David Cerny featuring a huge head in the center of a circular fountain. The polished steel surface acts as a mirror reflecting North Carolina’s blue sky and clouds.

When the motorized, internet-controlled segments of Metalmorphosis (in Charlotte) are rotating, the result is an oddly mesmerizing perpetually moving showpiece which alternately looks like a human head—with disturbing, gaping holes where the mouth or eyes should be—or, alternately, like nothing replicated in the physical world.
