Galvanized and Stainless Steel
About This Piece
Infinite Span is a public art installation by Michael Buckley, located in Denver, Colorado. Suspended by stainless steel cables, a mirror-polished stainless steel diamond floats over the plaza in Grant Frontier Park. Infinite Span is symbolic of the infinite nature of time and the fleeting present moment. “If time is infinite, past and future, then the present moment itself becomes infinitely rare. That we are here, witnessing this moment now, is a miracle” Inspired by Christo’s unrealized Over the River, the piece was initially designed to span the South Platte River. The project was relocated to protect bird migration paths.
