The Keyes Gallery
Two interactive welded steel sculptures in Buss Rubert’s mega-exhibition of 160 works at the newly reopened Keyes Gallery stand out. Hurricane Fran (1999) twists upward toward its awkward leering mobile head. Viewers may grab onto the red silk ribbons of Fran’s hair and run around the sculpture to send her steel head spinning. This twisted form activates the viewer; it was created using both Mac and IBM CAD programs and center-of-balance calculations.
