The Generation of Possibilities
The Generation of Possibilities
Sculpture by Paul Frank Lewthwaite, winner of the national competition for a sculpture to mark the 175th Anniversary of UMIST 1999.

According to the artist's website LinkExternal link
The Generation of Possibilities is spray painted steel on a concrete filled base and was inspired by the electromagnetic experiments of William Sturgeon (1783-1850) which led to the development of the generator and motor. The forms also mirror the arches of the railway viaduct adjacent to the site.

It is situated on Altrincham Street next to arch #22 of the viaduct carrying the railway line between Piccadilly and Oxford Road.
