Serra at Gagosian.
When the large walk-through pieces go beyond a certain scale, in duration not in height, the weight of the steel becomes secondary to the experience, while still setting the parameters of the design. The result is less ambiguous than indecisive. The pieces should be less fluid to fit the limits of the material or Serra should use lighter materials that allow for details the pieces now seem to lack. [Both doubtful] Brute baroque is hard to pull off.

Whatever fixes are for later.
