A base composed of a red section that lies on the floor and a black section that rises to narrow point. On the point rests the moving part of the "mobile"--one arm extends out and ends in a black boomerang; the other extends out then attaches to a vertical arm that has yellow polygons on either end.
Alexander Calder
1963
The abstractionist's interest in the rhythm and motion created by the way shapes, lines, and colors interact with one another is here put in actual motion in the form of a mobile.
