Coffee, Elephants and Garden Furniture

Had too much of that great coffee at our local Piccino_poor me_ so i went for long walk in Dogpatch / Mission Bay ...
I stumbled upon “Ballast--The Richard Serra”, 2 handsome slabs of steel, like 2 sad elephants left behind by some small circus somewhere in nowhereland.
Underwhelming for me it was: poorly situated, it felt like a "missed opportunity", revealing even more the suburban, safe feel of the architecture around it...luckily the skyes above it were beautiful and baroque as they can be in San Francisco
BUT a really great surprise though was the arrangement of furniture / art installationish style in the garden close by (in the Koret Quad at UCSF Mission Bay) _ it is the work of Roy McMakin, lighthearted and whimsical, almost subliminally subversive, revealing itself slowly as you sit down and reflect : these awful pastic and wood garden chairs are actually made of bronze and these ubiquitous, ugly filing cardboard boxes laying around are made of steel and little bizarre details like that everywhere...check it out if you can...
