According to Sze, ‘sculpture... can cultivate the value of a concrete experience in space, in real time.’ It also ‘plays with things such as space, touch, location, intimacy, and memory... the way in which we experience movement... and the resulting revelation of specific moments in time that only physical space can create.’ This sculpture was first shown in Pittsburgh, US, at the Carnegie International exhibition in 1999. Displayed for the first time since, it has been reconfigured to respond to the specific space of this gallery.
