The “Drift” is made out of wire but when I look at it, the first thing that came in my mind was “lace” because of its delicate, thin structure and form. The way the white background contrasts the dark colored wire sculpture brings out the details of the piece of work and you can tell that Antony Gormley has spent some time making it. By the shape and form, tricks you in thinking that the object would be light but the fact that its made of wire it might be heavy. This does not have a story behind it, just a piece of art work for the public to see it, maybe it could be a decorative piece.
