Creating public art-works represents lots of challenges: Will the public understand it? Will it be salient years down the track? and possibly most importantly; will it survive continued vandalism? Let us applaud then this map roller triumph created by Carl Cheng in 1988! The 14 tonne concrete roller was cast with an inverted relief of a Los Angeles city block, including cars and buildings. Periodically it is rolled out onto the beach and leaves behind a positive relief in the sand ~~~ to be washed away by the inexorable tides.
