UrbanRock Design [Jeanine Centouri and Russel Rock], 2019
View Finder is an interactive sculpture that references the history of the Great Park site – the El Toro Marine Corps Air Station. Evocative of trailside wayfinding signage, this piece presents a series of cones pointing in various directions toward the landscape. As one peers into the oculus of each cone images from the past come into focus – aerial views of the Marine Corps base, airplanes, marines working, etc. These images provide vignettes of the site’s past overlaid onto the contemporary landscape.
View Finder is an homage to the past within a contemporary framework. The floral colorful form is striking from afar, while offering a series of intimate experiences up close.
