A photo of Noah Purifoy’s “The Kirby Express”, from 1995-1996. In a desert landscape with tan sand and a clear blue sky, a silver contraption assembled from bicycle wheels, pipes, toilet tanks, and metal canisters stacked vertically is set diagonally on the ground, closer on the left and further away on the right. Together, the items resemble a make-shift train set on wooden tracks. Behind the sculpture, another house-like installation called “The White House” sits on a platform, an open-air space raised a few feet off the sand.
