Bottle of Notes
Central Gardens, Middlesbrough, England
The artists felt that a nautical theme would be appropriate for the sculpture, because the famous explorer Captain Cook was born in that area. They wanted to make an object that would be both functional on land and on water, and they thought of a bottle. They decided to make the bottle out of steel, because it would reflect the town's history. The text of the sculpture was selected from one of Captain Cook's journals. The main reason that the artists created this sculpture, was to benefit others.
