Long Description:
Scott Burton (1939-1989) born in America, was inspired by the minimalism of the 1960's. This "Pair of Right Angle Chairs" was a concept of Burton's that evolved partially from the sets he designed in the 1970's for his Behavior Tableaux, in which actors mechanically moved and gestured to one another silently in emotion-packed encounters.
From the SIRIS website, the description states:

2 chairs with minimal detail- square attached to back rectangular block.
Artist: Scott Burton

Date Placed: 1983

Materials Used:
Granite
