Linear Sculpture - Sculpture in Lines

Two spirals emerge from  the ground, perpendicular to it.
1986 - PRIMUM MOVENS ULTIMUM MORIENS - 94x66x90cm

Two spirals emerge from the ground and start perpendicular to it, they move up, over and end on the ground. When I applied for this project, which was to result in a monument for Professor Dirk Durrer, I expected they were looking for a bust of him. One of his students, my physician, told me that Durrer would never have wanted a portrait made in his honor. That gave me courage and I thought about the graphic lines in electrocardiograms. They could also be interpreted as projections of some of my sculptures. The title of this sculpture refers to a muscle in the heart. It is translated from the Latin above, "what moves first dies last"; was the title of the inaugural lecture by Prof. Durrer in 1957. The reference the sculpture makes to the title was suggested to me after I presented my proposal to the committee.
