Equal Intervals, Equal Elevations
Richard Serra is one of the most well-known and highly collected sculptors living today. Since Serra prefers to work with rough industrial materials, Equal Intervals, Equal Elevations is composed of four blocks of forged steel. This minimalist sculpture focuses on four critical elements: materials, forms, site and the viewer’s experience.
