At the north end of the plaza, there's Biscuit, a concrete disk, set on an angle and standing on edge. A cross between yin yang symbol and Tinkertoy connector, its recesses beckon for inhabitation . . .
The clear centerpiece, however, is Figurehead, made from sewer pipe. Usually visible only while waiting to be planted . . .
assembled by da Cunha to form a 30-foot-high tower. Like Marcel Duchamp, da Cunha is known for creating art from everyday objects - everything from pop bottles, to beach towels, to the heads of mops, and the concrete pipe used in Figurehead is said to be locally grown. As with Biscuit, the pieces making up Figurehead are not solid but pierced with large openings. The bottom-most section has an inward contour, making it seem like the base for a goblet spire.
