It is made from powder coated steel. Babcock’s goal as a sculptor is to do a lot with a little, creating complex, changing impressions using simple forms and materials. He takes inspiration from the structure and behavior of his subjects. He makes public art because he believes that public spaces reflect the ways communities and individuals think of themselves in relation to others and to the larger world.
