“On The Back Of Giants” by Phlyssa Koshland
Chevy Chase, MD
EDD installed this 18 foot outdoor sculpture, designed by Phylssa Koshland, to symbolize the continuity of scientific work. Large elements were water jet cut from a 3/4” aluminum plate and connected to each other with slip joints. Each joint is secured with a custom bracket that is through-bolted with studs and fastened with shallow dome nuts. All surfaces are hand-finished and clear-coated to withstand the weather. The sculpture is attached to the top of a stone pedestal in the center of a large planter. Four computer controlled lights complete the installation.
