Anish Kapoor’s “Cloud Column” stands over two stories tall, gracefully inviting us to contemplate not only the object itself, but also how we position ourselves in relation to the world around us. The highly polished stainless steel surface reflects every nuance of light and at the same time captures the surrounding landscape. The play between the convex and concave surfaces establishes a dual reality, as the elongated core of the sculpture presents the world upside down, bringing the heavens down to earth.
