    ball nogues: cradle installation in santa monica
    LA-based collaborative design and fabrication studio ball nogues just finished their
    most recent public art proposal. the project consists of a sculpture situated on the
    exterior wall of an existing parking structure at santa monica place - originally designed
    by frank gehry - near the beach and third street promenade. the site is heavily trafficked
    by tourists on foot and in automobiles. named 'cradle', the permanent artwork was installed on
    tuesday, july 27, 2010. it measures 39 ft. wide and 36 ft. high.

    the piece is an aggregation of mirror polished stainless steel spheres and operates structurally
    like an enormous newton’s cradle (the ubiquitous toy found on the desktops of corporate executives).
    each ball is suspended by a cable from a point on the wall and locked in position by a combination
    of gravity and neighboring balls.
