Currently on view at this year’s annual Sculpture by the Sea in Bondi, Australia is this fun piece titled Diminish and Ascend by artist David McCracken. The welded aluminum stairsteps appear to create an infinite path into the sky, depending on the angle and/or the presence of clouds. Reminds me somewhat of Do Ho Suh’s piece Karma in New Orleans.
