Back in June 2010, my friend Veronica came to visit from Buenos Aires and we spent 3 days touring Washington D.C.  During our visit to the Hirschorn Museum, I found this sculpture – Gyrostasis by Robert Smithson, done in 1968.  For you Spiromaniacs out there, it is a single spoke of a Baravelle spiral (an 8-sided one, I think).
