New Piece, 1966
Tony Smith (1912-1980)

Smith's pieces are maddeningly elusive, often seeming to radically change their form depending on the viewing angle. As you circle the piece your perception of its shape and size continually alters. Smith says "We think in two dimensions - horizontally and vertically and for that that reason I make models - drawing would be impossible."
Fun Fact: This shape is called a rhombohedron. It is a three-dimensional figure like a cube, except that its faces are not squares but rhombuses.
