With the twin minarets of one of the mosques located on the campus of KAUST in the background, this piece of art called “Spheres” is one of three identical bronze Swiss cheese spheres (that’s what I call them anyway!) that sit outside one of the buildings there. The spheres are an interactive design, with the holes in them intended for humans to enter the spheres. The artist responsible for the creation of this piece of art is CARSTEN HÖLLER, the Belgian born German artist who has a doctorate in agricultural science and worked as a research entomologist until 1994. Much of his inspiration for his artwork is derived from his passion for science. KAUST is King Abdullah University of Science and Technology.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby and teenage son. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE, which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
