RE: welcome Michael Nava 8/16/2015 9:23:19 AM I agree, this sculpture definitely shows the many elements of futurism. It portrays a figure with a modern design and a very strong physique proportionally. It also shows a sense of motion or speed in the way it flows aerodynamically. All these elements were part of the spirit of futurism and this sculpture certainly showcases that. RE: welcome Aimee Ruiz 8/16/2015 7:51:22 AM When I first looked at this piece the word modern is the first word that came to my mind. I see a human figure in motion but apparently with no arms. It shows beauty but it also shows a bit of hardness to it as well. Here is information I found on the internet while researching: "Unique Forms of Continuity in Space depicts a human-like figure apparently in motion. The sculpture has an aerodynamic and fluid form. As a pedestal, two blocks at the feet connect the figure to the ground. The figure is also armless and without a discernibly real face. The form was originally inspired by the sight of a football player moving on to a perfectly weighted pass. Though Boccioni apparently reviled traditional sculpture, Unique Forms of Continuity in Space does resemble more realist works. It is reminiscent of

When I first looked at it I saw the shape of a person walking forward. They could be walking toward the future or running from the past. I say it's moving forward because of the way the flame shapes reflect that of air blowing on clothing (walking into the wind). This is what amazes me about art, that what you see changes at the suggestion of it's representation. RE: welcome Aimee Ruiz 8/16/2015 3:51:39 PM I agree, a football player never came to mind for me. It's amazing what each person interprets and then once you find out what it really is, you can actually see that as well. Everyone is different. RE: welcome Bradley Ward 8/16/2015 7:30:48 PM When I first looked at this sculpture, I tried to focus on the individual shapes throughout the sculpture instead of the overall sculpture, so I definitely did not see the football player that my class mates are talking about. At the base, I saw dolphin like figures that looked like they were swimming towards the sky. These dolphins turned into birds that looked like they were ready to take off. When I
