Circular Formations by Michael Jantzen

Circular Formations are a series of three functional art sculptures designed to be placed into a public venue such as a park and/or sculpture garden. Each one of the structures is made of painted steel and wood. All of them are primarily formed from the assemblage of eight-foot diameter circular rings. Some of the rings have been cut into portions of a circle, and others are assembled into the formations as full circles.
In each case, places where people can sit are built into the sculptures. These structures were created very directly with no pre-planning about how to organize the final form. Three-dimensional models were made first that allowed for a free form approach to their final construction. I developed these sculptures as three-dimensional sketches that do not suggest a finality in their design, but rather illuminate the potential of endless possibilities.
