Derek Rydberg with Rocket Crane prepares to attach cables to the Ark of the Anthropocene, a 4,000 pound, six-foot-wide concrete sphere created by San Connaughty containing a terrarium of more than 50 different plants. The artwork was hoisted by crane and anchored in the Duluth Harbor behind the DECC Tuesday afternoon. Forum News Service1 / 2
The Anthropocene bobs peacefully in the Duluth Harbor after being installed Tuesday afternoon. If all works according to plan, cameras inside the Ark will transmit video of the plants to the Great Lakes Aquarium and from there to the Duluth Art Institute, where it will part of an exhibit featuring other terrariums.
