Cyclone is a metaphor for the force of destructive political instability. The tilted table and chair stand for the disruption of political discourse in which adherence to norms of behavior, laws, traditions and decorum are ignored. While the displaced and tilted bucket represents politicians' habit of transferring responsibilities and blame to others, the muffler represents the large parts of the citizenry that keep quiet and thus acquiesce and support this system.




  • With the exception of the teak slats of the chair, all the parts of the sculpture are made of SS304 and are manually welded with the manual GTA (TIG) welding process.
  • While the tilted chair and table are welded to each other and the round SS304 base of the sculpture, the tilted bucket and mufler are welded to this round base only.
  • The SS304 round base onto which all parts are welded has a 47.5" diameter and is 0.25" thick.
  • The round baseplate that weighs the sculpture down onto the groumd is made of limestone onto which the SS304 round base is bolted has a 49.50" diameter and is 4" thick.  
  • The sculpture has a 49.50" diameter at its base, is 45" high and weighs about 1600 lbs.
  • The sculpture, which can be displayed either indoors or outdoors on a limestone, marble, granite or wooden base, is designed to be disassembled from its base, transported and readily reassembled by bolting.
