"Two Lines Up-Spread" is a 30 foot high, stainless steel kinetic piece created by George Rickey especially for the Long Beach Museum of Art's bluff site. The piece is composed of a vertical line with two moving linear blades. Each blade is 15 feet in length and makes a 360 degree turn in the air at different speeds in response to off-shore breezes. Rickey sees invisible planes and lines through the motions of his kinetic sculpture. The invisible planes and patterns intrigued him as much as the visible action of lines and motions often observed by the everyday viewer.
