Möbius Ship by Tim Hawkinson

Möbius Ship by Tim Hawkinson has got to be one of my favorite pieces of art at the Indianapolis Museum of Art. Made of wood, plastic, Plexiglas, rope, staples, string, and twist ties, it’s very intricate and incredibly well-detailed.

And I thought Ann Wood’s ghost ships were amazing… I know my photos are pretty crappy, but can you see the level of detail in this sculpture?

  1. the IMA is a real gem with wonderful works in their collection. I think i am most affected by both of their Robert Irwin installations- the disc hovering on the wall and the field of lights running up the central atrium.

    though, they have a favorite Tuttle sculpture. and when i was last there, the room hung with small, monochrome Ellsworth Kelly knocked all of our socks off.

  2. Wow! I’m a huge fan of Ann Wood’s work, so seeing this sculpture is so incredibly inspiring! Thank you so much for sharing, and I would also love to see this in person.

  3. This really does deserve to be seen in person! I was so busy photographing the details that I didn’t have a chance to step back and shoot the whole thing before a guard asked me to put my camera away. Whatever, buddy! If I remember correctly, the sculpture is taller than I am. It’s really, really amazing.
