Installation in the public atrium at 590 Madison Avenue, New York. An elaborate, hand-wrought rope machine in wood, steel and cord, The Nervous System (Inverted) hangs 50 feet above the ground, the intricate structure of axles, gears, and drive shafts spanning 25 feet in diameter, and radiating outwards from symmetrically arranged hubs; once in motion, its constellation of colored spools revolve in orbit reciprocally and begin to twine their threads.
