The Sculpture selections this issue represent seemingly opposite ends of the creative spectrum: Francis Hines fabric installations have the heroic proportions (and, occasionally, the actual forms) of monumental Beaux-Arts landmarks, while the collaboration between Billy Klüver and Andy Warhol exists as a series of "clouds"-- sparkling, ephemeral creations which float untrammeled in the air. Ironically, Hines' projects are usually dismantled after a set period of time while the Klüver/Warhol piece exists as a permanent part of the Warhol Museum collection--where it is a particular favorite with child visitors. Mixing child-like whimsy with mythical atavism, Charles Henri Ford refers to both personal infancy and the heroic past. The self continually creates both disposable verities and perpetual pop.
