aluminum ladders

Paul Rosenblatt is an architect. His simple gesture of stacking a series of low stepladders one upon the other evokes Constantin Brancusi's 'Endless Column,' an influential specimen of modern sculpture. The column's individual parts suggest Marcel Duchamp's 'readymades.' There is a disturbing tension about the structure, akin to some contemporary architecture, specifically some of the latest proposals for the World Trade Center.
