Whitney Focus presents Claes Oldenburg's "Ice Bag-Scale C"

Claes Oldenburg discusses his 12-foot diameter Ice Bag-Scale C, from a series executed in 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."
