Sparrow, 1987Concrete, steel, ice4' × 3' × 100'

Placed along side of and parallel to the East River and both islands, a 100′ x 4′ x 4″ slab of concrete is poured flat and level 22″ above the ground while supported on ice. As the ice melts the slab lowers on to a 4″ x 1/4″ x 100′ blade breaking its axis. After the break, the two segments simply fold down and lean against each other. Dedicated to Libya.
