Unique Forms of Continuity of Space, Boccioni 

Embracing the Futurist movement, Boccioni created this sculpture and focused on the movement of the form as opposed to the details like limbs and arms. The motion is clear--the form is moving forward as indicated by the seemingly draped fabric that blows back around its legs. Bocconi claimed that he had "glimpsed a complete renovation" of the art of sculpture in this design of his. It takes the body and transforms it into a vehicle of motion instead of a common aesthetic focus.
