Goldie, the sleeping, resting, dead robot?

Goldie is the name of this robot. An old rusty robot, lying in the middle of Birminghhams (in Alabama!) University Campus. Goldie was made by an graduate student named Joe McCreary, and there is more to this sculpture. Goldie wants to show the shutdown of Birmingham's "Sloss Furnaces" in 1972 and the downturm of the iron industry as a whole. Think about it, and then look again at Goldie. You can learn more about the work at the website of the University of Alabama.
