BALANCING ACT, brushed stainless steel, 13 x 9 x 22

Balancing Act, a twenty-two foot stainless steel sculpture seems to accomplish the impossible. It portrays minimal geometric forms frozen in a precarious position. The three circular forms serve as both steps and seating area. Their location will encourage public interaction with the piece.
