This is Alexander Liberman’s 1983 installation, "Stargazer". It graces the frontage of the San Diego Tech Center, which is just opposite the hotel in which I am staying.
I have taken photographs of this structure every day since I came here. Perhaps other people don’t do their Project365 in the same way as I do, but it always makes me feel good to have a half-decent picture in my back pocket. So I take a picture of something interesting, and then hope I won’t need to use it… that I;ll find something else useful instead… and that leaves the original subject usable tomrrow… just in case!
Anyway, I reserve the right to use a day-time photo of this tomorrow… but it looks pretty interesting in the darkness too!
