What I learned at Storm King: Steel is fluid.

Yes, I'm still talking about the amazing things I experienced at the Storm King Art Center.  But I can't leave the topic without mentioning a couple of other sculptures.  These two Zen-inducing works are made from steel.  But with just a slight breeze, the metal sculptures drift and glide effortlessly, transforming sculpture into something magical.

Here is Five Open Squares Gyratory Gyratory (1986, stainless steel) by George Rickey.

And this is Sea Change (1996, stainless steel) by George Cutts.
