»The value of cities is measurable with the number of places they reserve for improvisation.«

Spontaneous Sculptures is the first solo publication of artist Brad Downey, and still only covers a fraction of his whole output.
The term Spontaneous Sculptures was coined to summarize all the fast and ephemeral works he did in cities around the globe for several years.
The book shows a selection of these often humorous works, contextualized with an text by Jennifer Thatcher and two interviews. Bonus: a comprehensive index.
