In Grand Scale

IMG_3814The Greek scholar Proclus is reputed to have said that “the circle is the first, the simplest and most perfect form.”  I think he’s right.  There is no doubt that circles are an extremely pleasing shape to the eye.

So when I saw this grand, circular scale at the loading dock adjacent to the Dinin’ Hall eating area — a scale that boldly promises to give “honest weight” while weighing items that tip the scales at up to 2000 pounds — I had to take a picture.  The circle takes what would have been a humdrum piece of machinery and turns it into a work of industrial art.
