A piece of art I viewed that I felt could be more appreciated in person than in a book was an untitled sculpture by John Chamberlain. It was made of aluminum foil, acrylic, lacquer, and polyresin. I found the medium striking because it crushed such a vastly large version of an everyday item (industrial weight aluminum) crushed into such a conformed shape. Seeing it in person helped me to appreciate the art better because I wouldn’t have seen the variation in the folds and how much power must have been put into crushing it into a cube. I found it appealing because it was such a chaotic mass formed into such a perfect geometric figure.
