The Genie of the Station

promises to engage a wide range of sensibilities and demands. The mathematician‘s interest in topological systems; the acrobat's interest in spatial rotation and angular momentum; the sculptor's interest in elastic volumes, surface tension, and the representation of forces and phenomena; anyone, for that matter, who has flown a kite, or seen Fantasia's transformation of music into image; the child who balances a spoon on a glass's rim or wonders how the word “balloon” came to refer to cartoon speech—all of us are waiting with anticipation to see what kind of a thing this sculpture will be.

Elizabeth King and Carlton Newton
