    • A self-destructing sculpture by Jacques Tinguely
    • Jean Tinguely's "Self-destroying construction No. 1", Homage to New York, was built in the Buckminster Fuller dome at the Museum of Modern Art over a period of three weeks. When in 17 March 1960 his machine was put into action, the specctacle was one of beautiful humour, poetry, and confusion. The machine performed for half and hour and exists no more.
