The largest stainless sculpture created by a woman in 1981. 

Culver City, home of the most movie films ever created in California, invited me to create a sculpture in front of their Veteran's Memorial  Auditorium. 

One of the councilmen wanted a California bear, but I said to him, "That's been done. Let me do something that hasn't been done before."

I pondered the design that would be most representative of Culver City's contribution to the world, and I decided a strip of film would be the most descriptive.

I took a reel of film and tossed it, pulled it, played with it, until I understood the film's need to move and curl. I photographed the exterior of the Auditorium and I decided they should have a big film called Filmstrip USA. The filmstrip concepted was enthusiastically accepted.
