The T-Shirt version of my Photograph by the same name.
So I went down to Rochester’s Lower Falls park expecting to shoot these great images of the Falls, that you could only see mist emanating from in my previous black and white bridge shots. I didn’t find any spot that I could get an unobstructed view of the falls but I did find this.
There are four monolithic (a quatralith?) Black stone pillars with faces and hands carved into them, appearing to be trying to break free in some cases. In the center of the four pieces is a marble block on which it is inscribed “The seat of forgetting and remembering.”
The Rochester Wiki has a very little bit of info.
The Sculpture was created by Adriana Ippel Slutzky, a sculptor/art educator who taught at the Rochester School for the Deaf. It was unvield in 2001 as part of the annual Rose Festival to celebrate the trail and overlook improvements made to the park.
