"Fictitious Force" (outdoor sculpture), by BEKA GOEDDE, in the "Exposed'' show at the Helen Day Art Center, in Stowe, Vt., through Oct. 15.
This piece is a cast-concrete tile formation of a braid rug.
Ms. Goedde says: "A fictitious force, in physics, is an apparent force; it is not due to one object or another accelerating but instead the natural frame of reference itself is accelerating. The rug is a household object I employ especially for its concentric, circular, or centripetal pattern.''
We're in the heart of New England's outdoor art season.
