If no one knows, any ideas on how I could find out?

TIA

My office is in the building next door.

Head was functioning last time I passed by, last Wednesday, 06/25.

It was down for "service" for a few weeks late May - early June.

Metalmorphosis stainless steel, motors, computer driven control centre, water etc
instalation on 3700 Arco Corporate Drive, Charlotte, North Carolina
Hright : 30 feet, weight 14 tons

Charlotte has some cool art around the city.






It really cool it has rotating parts that come together and form this face.
Once the face forms water comes out of its mouth for a brief period then the whole head turns then the whole head rotates to a different posistion then the head transforms again into different shapes.

They've been cleaning him up for the last few days. (The water dribbling down his chin left a mess.) He looks shiny and new again, but the water is still drained out of the pool. It'll be at least a couple of days before he's rotating and spitting again. You can watch him on a live web cam here: metalmorphosis.tv. He normally doesn't rotate at night, but check during the day to see if he's back in action. (I work in the building behind him. Don't get a direct view from my desk but can watch him from the breakroom at lunch.)

Also see pictures here: David Cerny - uplne oficialni stranka

Here's the location:
Google Maps
The street view was taken during construction and he was hidden in a box.
