1988 - metal: steel
The fabricated steel sculpture by Seymour Ikenson looms ominously overhead ready to frighten anyone with a predilection towards arachnophobia. 'Spider', with its glossy black surface and pointy fangs is easily recognized as the image of an abstracted spider. The five curving legs begin as large flat steel pieces and then extend to the ground by way of metal struts that create an architectural structure. Viewers will also notice the resemblance to the stabiles of Alexander Calder in its scale and use of bolts as both fasteners and visual stimuli.
