More Chuily sculptures gleaming against the stark concrete Salk Institute walls.  At the time of construction the damp concrete was imprinted with plywood so that the outer walls are ingrained.  The teak window and door framing has also grayed over fifty years.  The entire edifice jutting out toward the Pacific ocean has such a parallel feeling to Murano and Venice in  misty fog.  Chuily must have felt this also as he placed the small fishing skiff and filled to overflowing with the colorful “fishing floats.” The entire installation is so perfect one can’t help but wish for permenance.  All but one or two of the sculptures will move on turning the setting back to the scientists and researchers.
