Can YOU name a new landmark?

A new sculpture sits on the course of the former A3 separating the National Trust’s Hindhead Common and Devil’s Punch Bowl, GU26 6AB, following a snowy launch on 23rd March.

During the course of the final 10 days working, lots of words started to come to me but none quite seemed to fit a final name. A sculpture may speak to you as viewer in an entirely different way to me as creator – and so it seems a fun idea to see how others will view the piece, be they the children associated with the project, locals, or those who may want to engage without even establishing physical contact or knowing any of the background of the area.

A name for the sculpture will be decided in October 2013. Ultimately it will need to completely satisfy me as the sculptor; but as an improviser, I will continue to be open to suggestion as it may yield something that I will know that fits.

Leave your thoughts here, or tweet @massform or comment at http://www.a3dhindhead.tumblr.com where more images and film of the project can be seen.

Why not send someone the e-card below, or a link to this post so they can join in with naming a new landmark?

I hope it will encourage people to divert for a few minutes from some future trip along the A3… to see it properly in the round. It’s two minutes from the junction immediately south of the new road tunnel. My intention is that the thoughts on (and interpretation of) the piece – and suggestions of names – will be collated and published along with my own thoughts – because everyone’s view, if heartfelt, is equally valid.

Please spread the word, or visit Hindhead! A cafe sits just beyond the National Trust car park visible in the picture, and excellent walks beckon.
