Zaid Yousef | Iterate: Cement Weight on #2

October 4, 2012 - January 20, 2013

Artist’s statement:

This sculptural proposition titled Iterate: Cement Weight on Wire #2 articulates a physical representation of the idea of measurement. A primary objective was to grant "tension" physicality and to make the notions of weight, angle, and space palpable. Using raw materials such as steel and concrete lies in the context of my search for clarity, reduction, and objective distance from my art.
