Object Description: Julián Althabe became interested in abstraction in the 1950s. He was especially curious about the concept of the fourth dimension, a popular scientific subject that inspired many modern artists to explore spatial realities existing beyond perception. In "Escultura," Althabe interlocks two sets of winglikeshapes made with string and wire. The internal rhythms of the triangular frames suggest that their rotation takes place simultaneously along vertical and horizontal axes in an invisible dimension. Althabe’s early interest in science and virtual movement made him a pioneer of Kinetic art in Argentina.
