George Rickey, American, 1907–2002

Two Planes Vertical Horizontal II, 1970

Stainless steel
The John B. Putnam Jr. Memorial Collection, Princeton University

Situated at the highest point of campus, Rickey's sculpture holds the distinction of being the only kinetic outdoor work in the collection. The two squares can turn 360 degrees on a horizontal axis, and the whole assembly can rotate fully around its vertical axis with the help of a strong breeze.
