KAUST Sculptures: Delphinus


Another shot taken out at KAUST, King Abdullah University of Science and Technology. This photo shows part of a larger group of about eight unusually shaped objects created by Australian artist Donna Marcus. Much of her artwork is inspired by discarded kitchen gadgets. In Delphinus, she has taken the classic shape of the lemon squeezer to a whole new level. The series of objects was arranged so as to match the positions of the Delphinus constellation, hence the name.
