Check out the video (below) of Amber Cobb while artist-in-residence at Demiurge a sculpture fabrication company in Denver. Cobb made this concrete mattress piece “As I Adapt” that is part of the group exhibition, Not Exactly at Redline Denver. From detail to material and curatorial concept- rumor is, and I concur, that this is the best sculpture on exhibit in Denver right now.
