I See What You Imply, supersized sculpture of a blue bear by Lawrence Argent, was installed along the 14th Street Side of the Colorado Convention Center as portion of Denver’s % for Art System on June 23, 2005. Initially commissioned in 2002, the 40-foot higher, ten,000 pound sculpture, was constructed of molded polymer concrete and steel at a price of four,400.

The bear evolved from a tiny plastic children’s toy, scanned with a with a 3-dimensional laser-scanning device from Cyberware Inc. The Cyberware device converted the shape into a CAD file, which Argent repositioned making use of an animation system from Newtek, which transformed the 3-D hape into hundreds of thousands of tiny triangles, utilizing about 400,000 reference points, and generating movement by altering the triangles’ shapes. Argent lowered the file down to 4,000 or so triangles, which he then sent to a a design firm, which employed a fused deposition modeling (FDM) fast-prototyping machine manufactured to produce a tiny three-D scale-model plastic maquette. Argent then hired architectural composite fabricator, Kreysler and Assoc., to fabricate the structure produced up of thousands of faceted triangles of different sizes. The components have been designed in California and transported to Denver on 4 trucks. Throughout installation it suffered an abrasion on its left haunch even though getting hoisted off its back by a crane. The scratch was painted over.

The Colorado Convention Center (CCC), situated among 14th Street and Speer Boulevard, and between Champa Street and Welton Street, was opened in 1990. In 2005, an expansion doubled the size of the facility and the center now consists of 584,000 square feet of exhibit space, 100,000 square feet of meeting rooms, and 85,000 square feet of ballroom space. Curtis W. Fentress, FAIA, RIBA of Fentress Architects, was the architect of both the original style as well as the expansion.
