Giants Take Over Rockefeller Center
In the course of three days Rockefeller Center Plaza was taken over by a fleet of giants. These giant pieces of art were created by a Swedish artist named Ugo Rondinone. Ugo has not been to New York since 2007 when he built another art exhibit. The exhibit is called, "Human Nature" and is part of the re-installation of the Rockefeller Center Show which is the return of public art there. These 'giants' are truly gigantic weighing roughly thirty thousand pounds each and stand up to twenty feet high. Ugo's goal of the exhibit is to have people feel awed in the presence of giant rocks in the era of technology.
