Alexander Calder

I went to the Alexander Calder exhibition at the Tate Modern the other day. The appeal was mainly in the whimsical nature of the work; the shifting dimensions (which don’t come across properly in the photographs; they really need to be seen in person) and the balancing installations. It resonated with our earlier installation and it all seems relevant to the kind of work I might end up doing on the Greenwich Peninsula, where everything is poised between the old industry and the new development.
