Photographer's Note

My last pictures were kind of introduction to this one, just to give you the context. it is detail from the Kapoor's monumental Tall Tree and the Eye (2009), installed outside the museum alongside outdoor works by Louise Bourgeois, Daniel Buren, Jeff Koons, and Fujiko Nakaya, consists of 73 reflective spheres anchored around three axes. This illusionistic work continues the artist's examination of complex mathematical and structural principles embodied in sculptural form. The mirrored surfaces of the orbs reflect and refract one another, simultaneously creating and dissolving form and space. Images of the surrounding city, including the Nervión river, Buren's sculptural intervention on La Salve Bridge (Arcos rojos/Arku gorriak, 2007), and the museum itself, are cast into dynamic suspension.

I found it fascinating. All spheres were the same size, but in reflections we see big spheres, inside them smaller ones, and inside them still smaller, ... and so on. it reminds me the fractal structures.
The sculpture stands in water so it is not possible to come closer. You can see where the photographer stood :).
