Andy Vogt works with standard units of material to create sculptural drawings that encourage us to see dimension where little, if any exists.

Air travel puts us through repeated reductions in personal space from huge airport lobbies, through hallways, down aisles, and finally into compact airplane seats before we fly through the vastness of the sky, miles above the earth. This progression inspired the successively compressed point of view of this sculpture. Vogt applied simple addition and subtraction of the brass bars, producing a forced perspective and sequential movement in the folded planes of the large waveform.
