Stacks


A site specific sculpture created by local artist David Harper, installed in the sculpture court at Cazenovia College’s Art and Design building on Sullivan Street in Cazenovia. The theme for Harper’s installation: “these trees shall be my books,” comes from William Shakespeare’s “As You Like It,” but the goal of the work goes far beyond Orlando’s wish to immortalize Rosalind. Harper seeks to immortalize the love of knowledge, and the homage owed to the living things we use to create stores of knowledge for all to study. “STACKS” captures the transformation from living tree to store of knowledge.
