Gaia is currently in Rochester where he just wrapped up this new piece for the Wall Therapy Festival.
“Commerce is swifter than culture” is a repeat pattern of the xerox tower, the aqueduct building, and the mercury figure that dominates the Rochester landscape in eight and a half by eleven format.
The statue of mercury on broad street was held in storage for more than two decades as it awaited a new perch after the Kimball tobacco plant was cleared for Urban Renewal. Now it is roosted in a frozen leap forward upon a branch office of Thompson Reuters.
Take a look after the break for some more images and then check back with us soon for more updates from Gaia.
