Sculpture + Site Furnishings

Arachnicat is a whimsical biomorphic sculpture climbing up out of the adjacent creek bed and strip of trees to explore newly developed Clover Park, in Dublin, California. She is a playful, brightly colored focal-point artwork for the park which can be enjoyed visually from multiple angles at ground level and from the switchback trail above.  Abstract and organic in form, she has an insect’s body comprising three spherical elements. The shapes of her five legs are anthropomorphically muscular yet their quantity and attachment to her body is spider-like. Arachnicat is designed for tactile human interaction and will appeal to people of all ages. Incorporated between her legs are three seating surfaces, allowing pedestrians and bicyclists to sit and relax within her.  Installation is scheduled for Spring 2020.
