Ceiling Braces
1971 | St. Louis, Missouri
Gelatin Silver Print | H: 10/25 W: 8/20 (in/cm)

The photograph documents basic geometry, in this case a complex hexagram of six triangular wedges used in a humble state park facility to create a round structure. Nickel was intrigued by the tension between the lines moving outward, penetrating the blocking, and the enclosing of those lines by the hexagonal shape.
