La Corrente is an award-winning 3D mosaic by Julie Richey, who created a sculpture of a dress out of marble, glass smalti and seashells. La Corrente, or The Current, appears to float in spite of the materials used in its making. "La Corrente is about beauty amidst destruction," says Richey. "It was created during the Gulf oil spill and it alludes to the many destructive forces, both man-made and natural, that creep in with the current." Also after the jump is Night Shirt, a wall relief mosaic that depicts San Francisco by night.
