Anthony Gormley, Clearing V New Works Sean Kelly Gallery, New York, USA, 2005

''I was trying to destroy the fixed co-ordinates of a room and make a space/ time continuum (a line without end) that was both a thing and a drawing. The work consists of up to 7 kilometres of raw metal rod that arcs from floor to ceiling and wall to wall, creating a three-dimensional drawing in space. '' From artist website

Anthony Gormley, Feeling Material IV 2003 Rolled mild steel hoops various diameters 208 x 162 x 150 cm

''The Feeling Material works started with an attempt to describe the space of the body using a matrix formed of orbits. The rings were made from tubes cut to the same width as the wall thickness of the tube. As the tubes became larger, this process became increasingly impractical.'' From artist website
