This sculpture requires no bolts or notches for its assembly. The friction of the material, with the mass of the piece pushing against the ground, holds it together. The title of the work matches the structure. In a humorous way, the viewer is asked to view the centipede in a larger-than-life form. This small insect takes on a dominant role with its increased size and presence.
Originally part of the SterlingScapes II Exhibition (Fall 2001-Spring 2004), Centipede was purchased by the Sterling Heights Community Foundation and the City of Sterling Heights for permanent display in 2003.
