Untitled (St. Louis Convention Center Piece)
8 July 1977 | St. Louis, Missouri
Plywood | H: 75/191 W: 116/295 D: 12/30 (in/cm)

Nickel took a found 4’x8’ sheet of plywood and cut it into arcs of the same degree. He rotated each piece three inches to the left and reassembled the sheet on a framework that allowed the surface to undulate. Net loss: 2 pounds of sawdust. The piece was exhibited at the inauguration of the new St. Louis Convention Center.
