Claes Oldenburg discusses Ice Bag–Scale C, 1971 

Claes Oldenburg discusses his 12-foot diameter Ice Bag–Scale C, 1971. Characteristic of Oldenburg’s work, the prosaic object is transformed through a dramatic increase of scale. However, it is the addition of movement that produces what Oldenburg describes as the Ice Bag’s “magic effect.”
