Bruce Pearson with hMa : Contains Real Hard Won Insight
date: 2012
contact: hMa | hanrahan Meyers architects LLP

This work is a collaboration between New York City based artist Bruce Pearson and hanrahan Meyers architects. The piece spells out the phrase Contains Real Hard Won Insight, which is also its title. hMa assisted Bruce by scaling his text design, normally placed within the context of a painting, and developing it into a large spiral-shaped sculpture: two 7′ tall arcs that visitors will be able to walk into and around (see diagram). hMa built a scale model of the installation (see photos). The full-scale sculpture has not yet been built, but will be approximately 90 inches tall, and constructed from laser cut, baked enamel-finished steel.
