Anish Kapoor, Cloud Gate
All the snow outside reflecting the light, makes everything look so much brighter, bigger and more spacious.
Anish Kapoor's Cloud Gate is constructed of highly polished stainless steal plates that reflect and distort the city's skyline. It was constructed between 2004 and 2006 in Chicago, and became one of the city's most prominent landmarks. Even though Kapoor's design was inspired by liquid mercury, it is popularly known as a Bean, because of its bean like shape.
This evening we will be serving a heart warming bean casserole with ginger and lemon, on the side some grilled polenta cakes, and a beetroot, onion salad. Nothing distorting and reflective about it but still perfect for this perfect winter day :-)
