JOURNALING:  This large (10x14x14 feet) sculpture of stainless steel and flexible cables is the work of Kenneth Duane Snelson, an American sculptor and photographer who passed away in December 2016.  Snelson discovered the idea of “tensegrity”, so named by his former professor, Buckminster Fuller, to describe the combination of tension and structural integrity.  Snelson preferred the descriptive term “floating compression”.  Titled “V-X”, this piece graces the north entrance to the Columbus Museum of Art.


My sister’s travel troll, Winnie Waymarker, enjoyed the art piece too. 10/30/16
