Public Art : Continuum sculpture
Sculptor: © Charles O. Perry (18th October, 1929 –
8th February, 2011)
Artist's Statement : The sculpture "began as an
exploration of the Möbius strip, a product of pure mathematics formed by joining two ends of a strip of paper after
giving one end a 180 degree twist, thus creating only one edge. The center of the bronze sculpture symbolizes a
black hole, while the edge shows the flow of matter through the center from positive to negative space and back
again in a continuum."
Date Unveiled: 1976
Location: The Continuum sculpture is located outside
the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC, USA.
