Field Visit (14 May 2015)

The ‘Floating Head’ sculpture was created by artist Roland Groom and featured as part of the 1988 Glasgow Garden Festival (Canmore ID 44232). It now sits on the S bank of the River Clyde, adjacent to a scrap yard. It comprises the lower hull of a boat with a fibre glass moulded head on the top. It currently stands upright on its prow and appears to stare N across the river.
