An Artificial Cloud In The Center Of The Universe


We've been in Texas and Oklahoma recently, in the area where Ed's parents were born and raised.  While in downtown Tulsa, Oklahoma, we visited a site known as The Center Of The Universe.

Apparently, the spot is an "acoustic anomaly", creating a chamber where your voice echoes back to you several times louder than it was when you spoke your original words.  If you're a fan of Tulsa King starring Sylvester Stallone, you may remember him discovering this spot in the second episode.  

The sculpture located near the brick circle is called Artificial Cloud.  It was made by Chiricahua Apache artist Bob Haosous, and was erected in 1991.  

It's located just north of the Tulsa Union Depot, a beautiful Art Deco building built in 1931. It's just one of more than one hundred Art Deco buildings located in Tulsa.
