One of Richards early works when he began to experiment with different materials such as fiberglass, neon, and rubber. This piece is made of rubber recovered from a warehouse in lower Manhattan. Serras' influence for this piece was allowing the piece to take a unique response to the action verb " to lift". Serra wondered what if you just enacted the verbs he compiled in relation to a material and didn't worry about the results.
