Siah Armajani: Bridge Over Tree

Today, it is hard to grasp how radical this work by Siah Armajani (American, b. 1939, Teheran, Iran) was when first conceived nearly 50 years ago. Interactivity and immersive experiences have since become cultural buzzwords and artistic strategies. Architectural form and sculptural practice now often share a common language. However, when originally shown in a Minneapolis public park in 1970 as part of a temporary sculpture exhibition, Bridge Over Tree was barely recognizable as a work of art. For the first time, this seminal installation has been recreated by the artist for presentation by Public Art Fund.
