Acconci Architectural Installation Creates Public Art at WaterParkCity

Designer/architect Vito Acconci began his career as a poet and performance/installation artist. What interested him most about the literary arts was the blank page; the inertia of reading and writing. How do you transverse a page? What makes you go from left to right, from one page to the next. However, he soon began to think if he was so interested in movement, why was he limiting himself to this page? It was from this moment that he became an artist.

The idea behind the Public Art installation at WaterParkCity is that space doesn’t make sense unless it’s ‘people’ space. Commissioned by Lanterra Developments, this masterpiece was completed in 2011.
