Picture of Searchburst taken through the window of Healey Library

Dennis Oppenheim (1938- )

"The thing with Searchburst is that it is utterly perplexing even though it is completely transparent," says Paul Tucker, professor of art and curator of Arts on the Point. "You can identify everything that comprises the piece of sculpture, you can associate aspects of it with things in this world, but it defies definition."
