"QUANTUM SHOT" #112


Will it roll? (Sculpture by Lars-Erik Fisk)

VW Bus ball is a part of the odd sculpture series by Lars-Erik Fisk. It's impossible not to wonder if this thing will roll - or drive? (some say the wheels are retractable in the manner of 007 Bond vehicle):

Lars-Erik Fisk is interested in spheres. More specifically, he is interested in the process of transforming things into spheres and by doing so revealing and capturing their essence. So far he's created school bus ball, train ball, barn & brick museum balls.

"Strange reactions are normal for the balls. When a private collector bought UPS Ball and displayed it on his front lawn, he was greeted one day by a pair of UPS workers. "We just wanted to let you know that we're here to pick up our thing out there," they said. "We're not sure how it got here. Maybe it fell off a truck." On the owner's protestations that it was a work of art, they kindly maintained, "It's no problem. We'll take it. Free of charge." Later, a postal worker expressed his admiration of the new "drop box" but admitted that he had no idea how to open it."

An interesting side note to Fisk's career has been his role as Art Director for the rock band Phish. Fisk's job was to create what he terms "environmental installations," building whimsical structures that imply escapes from reality and forays into wonder.

Balls pop up in some bus stops too:
