Tony Cragg's "Resonating Bodies" (detail), Battery Park City














"Resonating Bodies consists of a pair of bronze sculptures resembling giant musical instruments. One resembles a lute, the other, a tuba. This playful work is based on the concept that all physical bodies including ourselves are constantly enveloped by various energy forms, from heat, light, sound, and gravity, to magnetic waves, x-waves, even radio and TV signals. The sculpture displays these forces with a wave-like relief on its surfaces." (Battery Park City site)

The BBC has an audio interview with Tony Cragg discussing science and art, as well as interviews with other sculptors, scientists, philosophers, photographers, poets, political activists, religious thinkers and all that lot.
