Year: 2019

Dimensions: 36″ x 187″ x 16″ (chain length is variable)


Aircraft struts, x-ray machine stand, motor, variac, chain, struts, steel, aluminum.

This sculpture is fairly large and awkward to package so a simple shipping cost calculation is difficult.  I will be happy to provide free delivery within 100 miles of Oakland CA, or work with you to arrange transport options.  Please contact me if you’d like to discuss this.


More Details

This image of two creatures struggling over the same goal is a metaphor that you can apply to whichever futility you personally engage with the most. They were assembled from salvaged aircraft struts, but their design also owes something to the freight cranes that dominate the horizon near the Port of Oakland adjacent to my studio.
