Forms in Transit

November 21st, 2014

This sculpture, commissioned for the 1964-65 World's Fair, "suggests an aircraft, with fuselage and wings, but it is also meant to embody the concept of motion and change. . . . Though environmental corrosion is evident, some of the patchy, blistered surface of the sculpture appears to be original to the piece, and intended to suggest the incendiary voyage of the vessel as it passes at rapid speed through the atmosphere."
