Rector Gate 1988

by R.M. Fischer, 1947

Inspired by science fiction and structural design, R.M. Fischer designed “Rector Gate” in 1988. Fischer’s gate, which reaches a height of fifty feet, references the building and engineering of skyscrapers. Spindly pinnacles with spherical attachments and a wire-framed dome add to the otherworldliness of the sculptural gate. Fischer works with many different materials, including fabric and other metals. One of his most recent exhibits involved the use of stuffed fabric sculptures.
