Erector sculpture

Artist Harold Hoy makes sculptures out of Erector girders.

The works of Harold Hoy have centered on the complex relationship between mankind and the natural world. Hoy’s current body of work is constructed of galvanized steel and pipe hanger material and is based partly on an erector set. He uses the child’s toy as a platform to work around larger issues of man’s predilection for claiming ownership of the natural world and our desire to manipulate and re-form it.

    While I’m sure there are some erector set pieces in there somewhere, the dog is clealy made mostly of plumber’s tape. Calling that an erector set sculpture is kind of like saying that you live in a house built out of nails.
