Description In this work the stage is dominated by a crossbar suspended from cables with human figures perched upon it. The burden of heavy weight, someone else's support, the lightness. Saarinen interprets these sensations with sensitivity and calm; at times as mirror images, sometimes joined together, sometimes from distance.
