1995 Baltimore, MD 50’ x 35’ x 40’ cast iron, steel
The piece is built from 19 large cast iron elements: gears, wheels, chain, marine rigging and boiler parts, weighing over 90 tons, collectively. These elements are salvaged from the docks and shipyards of the Port of Baltimore, nodding to the crucial role heavy industry played in making the port of Baltimore what it is today.
