Rising is a sculpture by Alison Wilding. From a limited edition of 35, this was inspired by a radio play about the scientists who were working on the first atomic pile in 1942. In conditions of high security and extreme secrecy, the pile was constructed in a disused squash court in Stagg Field on the University of Chicago campus.
