Man in the City-Detroit
The Man in the City Sculpture Project is comprised of 20 sculptures located on the rooftops throughout the City of Detroit. John Sauve created the Man in the City project in 2008 and has exhibited it in Benton Harbor Michigan, on New York City's Highline and most recently on New York City's Governors Island. The Man in the City Project activates the skyline and encourages people to look around. In this process of looking and finding, one re-assess one's own position in the world and becomes aware of one's scale within the very fabric of the city. The Man in the City Project creates a metaphor for urban life and all the contradictory associations – alienation, ambition, anonymity and fame.
