Twisted Steel Beams, Sand-cast Bronze, 6 parts

from 11ft. to 6ft in height
October 2008-ongoing

The steel beams are evidently twisted and formed by tremendous force so they evoke associations in the memories of different generations and cultures. The twisted beams are intertwined with steel reinforcement rod and copper cable so they appear to grow plant-like from the earth, taking on a new life. The golden bronze, cast from USA military scrap glisten in the sun ambiguously flame-like.
