Behind Delaney’s Surplus
closeout store lurks a roughly 300-ton metal sculpture built from scraps of
industrial age machinery and designed for, well, space travel. Incredibly, it
is the world’s largest kinetic sculpture, one that Tom O. Every, known as
“Dr. Evermor,” designed without the help of blueprints. It’s one
in a series of imposing sculptures out back, including Bird Band (string
instruments on wiry legs). Jessica Adamiak
