Nautical Swing, located on Coleman’s Bluff at Hunters Point Shipyard in San Francisco, is seemingly constructed from parts salvaged from the site. The artwork provides a place where up to a dozen people can relax, converse, and enjoy the view while gently swaying on a circular bench —a park bench porch-swing hybrid. The perforated steel canopy with its large oculus creates a balance between the radiant view of the skies above and spectacular views of San Francisco, Oakland, and San Francisco Bay.
