14: Metalmorphosis, Charlotte, North Carolina
Metalmorphosis, much like metamorphosis, has to do with transformation. The 14-ton sculpture consists of roughly 40 steel pieces grouped into segments that rotate. When the pieces come together, they form a giant mirrored head that spits water into a pool. Metalmorphosis is large, strange, and most importantly, mesmerizing work of art.
