Description of Pictures: Axis Mundi
by Kate Raudenbush
Kate Raudenbush’s Axis Mundi is a futuristic landmark echoing the shape of an ancient obelisk, a monument used to mark places of importance. The sculpture references the dynamic diagonal lines of Pierre Charles L’Enfant’s city plan for Washington, DC and star patterns that connect to the sky above.
The modern obelisk marks this site, while a mirrored sphere reflects the people who surround it and form the vital center of our city.
Raudenbush is a self-taught sculptor. Born in DC, she now lives and works in New York City. She creates large-scale artworks around the world, including for the iconoclastic Burning Man event in Nevada and the recent No Spectators: Beyond the Renwick outdoor exhibition here in the neighborhood, co-presented by the Golden Triangle BID.
Same Event: Wait! There's more! Because I took too many pictures, photos from this event were divided among the following pages:

Partially Reviewed: Rough draft. I've gone through these pictures once, removing the worst ones, some duplication, etc. I usually take sequences of 4 or 5 pictures at a time and there are lots of near duplicates. I'll be doing a final review later which will cull the pictures down some. To be honest though, I'm way behind on doing final reviews.
Recognize anyone? If you recognize specific people (or other things) in the pictures which I haven't labeled, please identify them for the world. Or fill in any other descriptions you can. Click the little pencil icon underneath the file name (just above the picture). Spammers need not apply.
