Study of a Sphere
February 28, 2018
The Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose, California is a fascinating place to visit. There are always several intriguing exhibits covering a wide range of topics to explore. I went and checked out the Body Worlds Decoded exhibit at the end of last year. It was quite an experience and educational.
There is another reason for me to go there besides the exhibits. The building is rather modern and in my opinion not very attractive. But it offers a fair amount of architectural details. In particular a large sphere at the entrance of the escalator leading to the first floor has caught my eye. I photographed it for first time some years ago. And every time I go back, I continue the study of this object. The contrasts of light, forms, structures, and lines fascinate me. Below is selection of seven images I have made over the years.
