Dingle

1981 / Gene Kangas / Upper Arlington

00704 old.jpg

In Kangas' work, the I-beam's tend to represent the manufactured world: machinery, architecture, even art, while the curling pipes usually signify the natural world: trees, plants, and animals. Dingle is a piece that explicitly depicts the symbiotic relationship that has developed between Nature and Creation in the modern era.

A solid steel frame, supports, and is supported by, a vine that rises out of the ground, and a twisting column of pipes that reach up to the lintel. The cat stalks across the top of the structure.

Kangas modeled the cat after his neighbor's cat named "Dingle." The same model appears in Kangas' CSU piece "Door" as well.
