Five Futures (1983)
This project was created after I spent 1982 making smaller works dealing with the nuclear arms race. Five Futures was the summation of my research on the topic. The 11’ diameter sculpture takes the form of a five pointed star, a symbol used by both the US and USSR. The center of the work features a section of the Kremlin surrounded by the Pentagon. From these symbols of power extend the five points of the star, each depicting a different nuclear future: total nuclear war, limited nuclear war, nuclear proliferation, nuclear arms race, and nuclear disarmament. The side walls of each section contain stamped research information.
