When folks walk around Harbor Towers, there is the inevitable question about the huge stainless steel panel art sculpture. Are they supposed to be sails or maybe seagull wings? Some think they must be solar panels and of course, skateboarders only see big ramps. Going back to its creation in 1964 by original artist David von Schlegell, it’s formally named Untitled Landscape.
On Saturday morning, Harbor Tower residents woke up to a new meaning created by local artist Nate Swain who added some uncommissioned touches to the sculpture. Swain is calling it 1964 Mainframe Tops referring to the added ‘decals’ of the Apple and Microsoft brands, complete with “Intel Inside” and power on/off buttons.
