Science And Fiction

1945
Type: Collage / Mixed media collage

At the time this piece was created, Slobodkina was working as the manager for her husband’s (William Urquhart) 42nd street office, which exported a variety of mechanical products. When things were quiet, she produced collages like this one out of materials lying around the office. We can see a reproduction of da Vinci’s Vitruvius Man covered by an aerial photograph and pieces of a synthetic material called Koroseal (Tufts Catalog, p.25).
