"We do not measure our work by the yardstick of beauty, we do not weigh it on the scales of tenderness and feeling. The plumb line in hand, the look accurate as a ruler, the mind rigid as a compass, we are building our works as the universe builds. This is why, when we represent objects, we are tearing up the labels their owners gave them, everything that is accidental and local, leaving them with just their essence and their permanence, to bring out the rhythm of the forces that hide in them."

-Realist Manifesto, Naum Gabo and Antoine Pevsner, 1920

Yes! Mr. President (at Gallery 788, Baltimore, MD)
(“Government should pay people to dig holes in the ground, and then fill them up.”)
Wall Text:
“Government should pay people to dig holes in the ground, and then fill them up.” - John Keynes. Both Franklin D. Roosevelt and Barack Obama have referenced the quote in speech and action, in an attempt to relieve America's economic crisis.

Both machines are functional. They each require two people to operate, and can be raised, lowered, aimed and spun. Everything was build with a strict adherence to the artists Manifesto*. The tools are constantly in action in order to exist. The works are constructed with balance, tension and adhesion. After the show, the tools were disassembled and returned to use in people's homes.
