Dissatisfied Aristotle

December 1965
Time;12/3/1965, Vol. 86 Issue 23, p90
The article profiles Italian sculptor Arnaldo Pomodoro. He started out making modern jewelry and his self-taught attempts at sculpture gained recognition. His works won prizes at the 1963 Sao Paulo, Brazil and 1964 Venice, Italy biennials. Moreover, the slabs of his works look like innards of computers and the spheres are like printing heads of typewriters. Pomodoro did a facade for a school in Cologne, Germany and earned a Grand Homage to Technological Civilization.
