The Giant Woolly Millipede - Construction




Attack of the Giant Woolly Millipede

The Wholly Millipede, A 35' caterpillar-like creature that was created in October 1994 in the abandoned Geneva Iron Works site, in Youngstown, Ohio. Six artists commuted to Youngstown once a week to complete the piece. The Millipede construction consisted of materials found on-site; plastic, steel wire, window frames, steelworker clothes. Eventually the sculpture spurred the B-movie classic "Attack of the Giant Wholly Millipede". The symbol of destruction resided there until the demolition of the mill in 1996.
