Details

Constantin Brancusi's L'Oiseau dans l'espace, or Bird in Space, from 1923 to 1926 is one of the most influential sculptures of the 20th century; some critics even consider it to be a revolutionary new beginning in sculpture and the origin of modernity. Iñigo Manglano-Ovalle (MFA 1989) has tested what would happen if this icon of modernity left its theoretical orbit and performed a hypothetical re-entry into the Earth's atmosphere at a speed ten times that of sound in a hypervelocity wind tunnel at the U.S. Air Force Arnold Engineering Development Center in Silver Spring, Maryland. Suspended in flight, Bird in Space at MACH 10 confronts the values of modernity with those of our own time.
