Articulated Wall

A Denver landmark, although most people I know call it "the french fries." Here's what its placard has to say about it:

 

Articulated Wall, 1985 / Herbert Bayer 1900 - 85

Herbert Bayer made a lifelong commitment to integrating art into human environments. His ideas about art were fueled by the philosophy of the Bauhaus, the important German school of art and design where he studied and later taught. During his career, Bayer was a painter, photographer, architect, sculptor, and designer of graphics, exhibitions, environments, and typefaces. For twenty-eight years, Bayer made his home in Aspen, where he designed the Aspen Institute for Humanistic Studies campus. Bayer intended Articulated Wall to be viewed not only from close up, but especially from Interstate 25, where it seems to change shape when seen from a moving car. Articulated Wall belongs to the Denver Art Museum's Herbert Bayer collection and archive.
