A new monumental sculpture for Fort Mason Center, San Francisco. The largest urban national park in the country!
We are pleased to announce Tide/Untied, a new sculpture that helps define the entrance to Fort Mason, creates opportunities for wonder and curiosity, and offers a place for visitors to gather and meet.
Constructed of railroad track that seems to connect to the terminus of the historic track inside the Fort, the sculpture rail lifts dramatically out of the ground, creating places to sit, loops to walk through, and a playful definition to the entrance to the FMC. Though abstract in form, Tide/Untied looks vaguely familiar; perhaps the form references a nautical knot, frozen somewhere in the process of being tied, or perhaps it is a gesture toward the rolling tides that have carved the contours of the San Francisco Bay for millennia. Whatever the form might spark in the imagination of the viewer, the material of the sculpture is deeply connected to the history of Fort Mason and the Waterfront.
