This is a “forest” of 12 vertical rods, each with 4 square “tubes” on it.

Each tube can be rotated to feature any of the four sides, and also slid up and down.

So the look of the work will change greatly based on the whim of the last visitor, or by you.

This sculpture took nearly a year and went through many changes before it reached its current final version.

We are looking for appropriate venues to place this work.

Watch the video below to see how it works and all the different kinds of looks it can achieve.

By the Way...

adustable sculpture

It seems that with 4 colors and 48 boxes – if you ignore the variations afforded by sliding boxes up and and down, and ignore rotating boxes to angles other than square – the possible number of arrangements is 4 to the 48th power, which is 79,228,162,514,264,337,593,543,950,336.

Many of these arrangements look similar, only differing by a single change. So the number of really different looks is probably closer to… a few billion.
