Continental Drift
John McQueen
Willow, waxed string
2004
Concourse A, Installed 2012-2016

With slim branches of willow, John McQueen describes images of the mind as well as those of time and place. In the frieze running along the top of Continental Drift, we recognize things from the world and from history running together like ideas or memories. Below, the branches form tightly packed shapes that intermittently suggest familiar objects, but then elude definition.
