Danger — On shaky ground, a giant Safety Pin


Balanced Safety Pin in Blue, San Francisco, 2017

In earthquake prone San Francisco: Ignore the danger, and take a stroll beneath the gigantic safety pin in the sculpture garden of the De Young Museum:

Corridor Pin, Blue is a signal sculpture by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen. The viewer’s conventional expectations of a safety pin are truly “turned on its head.” The scale is magnified by a factor of 250, and the pin is balanced vertically in a manner impossible to achieve with its real-life counterpart.

A beautiful Spring day in San Francisco; not to be ignored.

It’s a dangerous world, here.
