Mighty Years2045

A rare later example of the artists’ monolithic slabs, Mighty Years features selections from Poul Anderson’s Uncleftish Beholding, a short work on atomic theory rendered into a bizarre form of English devoid of all non-Germanic words. The slab itself is mostly lead and the base it rests on is constructed of steel cylinders modeled after the type used to store toxic uranium hexafluoride. The artist comments; “An early Anthropocene artifact.” Soothly we live in mighty years!
