The Place Between, 2001 stainless steel and recycled bicycle wheels

The sculpture at this station is conceptually tied to the fractal geometry and the mathematics of what the eye cannot visibly see in the daily journey of coming and going. The “mechanical still life” represents the journey and the enormous effect the wheel has had upon the world and Salt Lake City. It is the notion of the wheel defining “the place” along the way, or the final destination of the traveler. The psychic relationship between the “box of air and the tension of its jumbled wheel contents are the overlaid images of a daydream – the inner workings of the brain . . .”
