MFA Thesis Exhibition

BUS STRUCTURE 2AM-2PM (2008), by R. Justin Stewart immediately caught my eye. It looked like a suspended super-molecule suspended by many small weights. The whole piece seemed to be floating in a perfect balance. Upon further inspection, the hundreds of threads connecting the counterbalance weights to the structure were all nearly the exact angle same angle as one another. How this was done, or how long it took, i do not know, but what I do know is that it is very catching to the eye. The piece takes up almost an entire room, but the effect is well worth it. I have yet to connect the piece of art to it's name, but it doesn't matter, it was my favorite anyway.
