The dynamism of the curved shapes in the sculpture

Forme uniche nella continuità dello spazio, U. Boccioni, 1913


"It is achieved through the intuitive search for the one single form
which produces continuity in space."
(Umberto Boccioni, 1882-1916)

Boccioni puts speed and force into sculptural form, as a search for 'simultaneity', and for a 'synthesis' between what is remembered and what is seen. The figure strides forward, surpassing the limits of the body, its lines ripple outward in curving and streamlined flags, as if molded by the aerodynamic of its passing.  Boccioni implies not only that his tightly compressed subject is so dynamic that it must burst its four-sided confines, but that it is a fragment of a constantly changing visual experience. It reflects a desire to go beyond the world of machines and, perhaps beyond ordinary senses
