Quarter Gallery Two

I have never seen an exhibition like this and this was an interesting experience . There were a couple of pieces I thought were really cool. The first one that I liked was the turtle structure - Stacker by Wayne E Potratz. I was impressed by the execution since metals are fairly difficult to work with in my opinion. It was also cool how the huge tortoise supported all the tiny ones. That concept reminded me of the old world perception about how the planet supported itself in space. The other piece I thought was almost exotic was the Air Sacrifice by Konrad Orthmein. The connection between air and iron is very specific in chemistry and it was a really bizarre take on this process I think. A sacrifice of air in order to make iron.
