Ball-Nouges' "Cradle" Offers Abstract Depictions of Surroundings 

Commissioned by the Santa Monica Cultural Affairs Division, "Cradle" is designed by Los Angeles-based studio of Ball-Nogues and is situated on the exterior wall of an existing parking structure at Santa Monica Place. Near the beach and the Third Street Promenade, the site is heavily trafficked by tourists on foot and in automobiles. An aggregation of mirror polished stainless steel spheres, the sculpture operates structurally like an enormous Newton’s Cradle - the ubiquitous toy found on the desktops of corporate executives. Each ball is suspended by a cable from a point on the wall and locked in position by a combination of gravity and neighboring balls while reflecting the a distorted image of passerby in both cars on foot.

John Leighton Chase - Some Thoughts

Image Credit: Alissa Walker/gelatobaby.comJohn Chase and I went a long way back to UCLA grad school. Even then he stood apart for his larger than life personality and his keen take on issues of the day. As flamboyant as he seemed, there was a gentleness to John, a quiet subtlety in his communication. He often wordlessly spoke in his trademark mischievous sidelong twinkle. You didn't have to be a genius to see it but for those that didn't have the inclination, the more obvious side of him left plenty to like as well. He was funny in a biting but never mean-spirited way. That is what allowed him to speak truth to power as he did every day at work and still be as beloved as he was by bureaucrats and developers alike. In the last few years, after much soul searching and some happy accidents, he seemed to have reached a state of grace in his life-it all just synched. Although he is gone, I am so glad he got to that place that so many people never do. He packed a lot of happiness into a short time and he deserved every second of it.
