Egg, Digital DNA, City of Palo Alto, Art in Public Places, 9.01.05, California, USA

"Installed in 2005 at Lytton Plaza in Palo Alto, California, this 7-foot-tall egg is made from welded steel, polystyrene bead foam, epoxy resin fiberglass skin and, for the outer shell, recycled circuit boards. Created by Brazilian artists Adriana Varella and Nilton Maltz, the sculpture has different phrases relating to technology written in multiple languages on its surface. Commissioned by the Palo Alto Public Arts Commission, the artwork is meant to honor the city’s role in birthing the tech-heavy Silicon Valley."
