Continuum by Menache Kadishman

Location:Weizmann Institute of Science
Rehovot
Dated: 1997

Description: Giant sheets of metal with tree shapes cut away

Caption: "'Continuum' is comprised of giant steel sheets with pieces excised to create silhouettes of archetypical trees. The observer is seemingly invited to "enter" the sculpture, to define the absent trees each time anew, and to create a continuum in the process. The silhouettes express the artist's involvement with nature in delicate, reflective touches. The metal forest rests in the midst of living trees, whose warmth contrasts with the cold of the metal. The sculpture was donated by a group of friends of the Institute headed by Norman D. Cohen and was dedicated to Harry Levine, one of the founders of the American Committee for the Weizmann Institute of Science."
