Composure - Dubai Industrial City, UAE
Located in the headquarters of Dubai Industrial City (part of Dubai, UAE), this forty-foot-tall stainless steel mobile is suspended within a five-story atrium space. Beginning with a sphere that represents Dubai Industrial City's global reach, each section of this mobile uses industrial imagery set within a container that holds the exposed machinery in a fluid, graceful form. As the overall work spirals upward, the gears within each section roll open and change as it climbs. In this sense, the sculpture can be seen to represent growth, composure, and adaptation in the world of industry.
