The late Al Taylor, whose habit was to build his sculptures first and then sketch them, was originally inspired to create his Hanging Puddles by a pool of dog’s urine. Taylor used such simple materials as hot-rolled steel and wire for his sculptures and explored the properties of Xerox machine toner and correction fluid for his drawings. Now by all accounts puddles should not hang, but Taylor managed to tease gravity and make his puddles levitate in whichever position he saw fit.
