This beautiful piece by Richard Serra fits perfectly in the theme of balance. The shapes of the containers and how one is sitting in the other at an angle, but is still stable, conveys this idea of balance. The two people inside also add to this feeling- They are standing facing eachother in very specific spots so as to make sure the structure doesn't tip in any direction. The use of color- the shades of black and greys- also adds a sense of unity to the piece.
