Cloud Gate reminds me of the silvered glass gazing globe I had decades ago in my apartment in Queens. This massive structure mimics my own attempts at creating pictures within pictures, often placing myself within that sphere, as I did when looking into that globe as a young man.

Although seamless like a mercury teardrop, Cloud Gate reflects, exaggerates and distorts – a simple reminder that things are not as they appear.
