Shapes in Space

Three Squares Gyratory I, 1975, Stainless steel

About this sculpture

This artwork is made of three squares which move with the slightest breeze, so the piece is continually changing. Look at the surface; do you see any reflections? Colors? Anything else? While this sculpture looks simple, it’s surprisingly not!

Kids Activity

Pretend you are a Rickey sculpture, and make your arms like metal lines moving in the wind. Try moving them back and forth; now move them around in circles. Which way do the squares in this sculpture move?

By George!

Hear from George, about geometry in his art and another sculpture he made using squares.
