The IMmobile

My latest sculpture is named The Immobile. It's an anti-mobile i.e., it is the antithesis of a Calderesque sculpture. It has no moving parts and can be floor or ceiling mounted.
The title also refers to Kurt Vonnegut's TM mantra "Im".
VONNEGUT: "I tried that [Transcendental Meditation]. It gave me a terrible headache."
The concrete chunks used as counterweights have an unintended resemblance to meteoroids in orbit,
which I suppose contradicts the purpose of the piece. "So it goes....."
Steel and concrete 110cm x 60cm x 106cm. Concept by me, realisation by J-M Fritsch. Click photo to enlarge.
