For William Frishmuth
The point is received and acceptable in every way.
Inspired by Frishmuths pursuit to produce a perfect solid aluminum pyramid, I began my own attempts to recreate his accomplishment. As my experiments failed over and over again, I became more interested in the failed results of my own efforts. I started intentionally producing failures investigating the beauty of textures available in the casting process. Equal in size to the original dimensions of Frishmuths pyramid my failed pyramids can to be switched from the storage shelves to the central pedestal, a scale model of the Washington monument.
