Long Description:
Astrogenisis II - An abstract sculpture that looks like a massive Dandelion, the giant ball is made of stainless steel springs, with only four points of support, so the slightest air movement causes the springs to vibrate and quiver.

The sculpture is by Maryland based artist Wendy Ross.

The sculpture by is lit by LED lights, ever changing between blue & white.

located at the Signature Plaza on the corner of Orange Ave and Church St.

"Orlando’s arts and culture community got a major boost with the official unveiling of eight permanent sculptures.

Two years in the making and with a price tag of $1 million raised from private funding, the iconic sculptures are part of the See Art Orlando collection, designed to enhance the aesthetic and cultural image of downtown Orlando.

With six of the sculptures located around Lake Eola and the remaining two a few blocks away, hundreds of local residents and visitors took the walking tour which kicked off at Seaside Bank Plaza on S. Orange Avenue where Astrogenesis II is located.

The eight internationally known artists who created the works of art were selected after more than 180 submissions from 16 countries and 36 states, were reviewed.

Sculpted by Wendy Ross of Maryland, and rising 30 feet into the sky, Astrogenesis II symbolizes energy which is enhanced by 12 triangular “florets” that project upward toward a steel ball. Astrogenesis II glistens and quivers with the slightest of air currents and glows from within at night." Text Source: (visit link)
