hanrahan Meyers architects are pleased to present this first look at a recent collaboration with New York City based artist Bruce Pearson. The piece spells out the phrase: Contains Real Hard Won Insight, the title of the piece. hMa assisted Bruce by scaling his text design, normally placed within the context of a painting, and developing Mr. Pearson's text into a free-standing spiral-shaped sculpture: two 7' tall arcing walls of text that invite visitoris to walk a sprialled path through the text, presented as free-standing, painted steel 7 foot tall letters. hMa built a scale model of the future installation (see images below). The full-scale sculpture will be approximately 90 inches tall, and constructed from laser cut, baked enamel-finished steel. The model shows the future installation as it would appear, if the piece is built over a pool of water.
