“The Brick,” a sculpture by Daniel A. Henderson, an inventor, entrepreneur, philanthropist and member of NJIT's Albert Dorman Honors College Board of Visitors, was unveiled today in the Fenster Hall lobby at NJIT. Completed in black Champlain marble and anodized aluminum, the sculpture was inspired by the world's first portable cellular telephone: the Microtac 8000x. Henderson, who invented wireless picture and video messaging in 1993, said that his work was an example of taking a temporal medium—the plastic used to build cell phones—and putting it into a natural medium. “The point of this body of work is appropriate to NJIT,” he said. “We are proud of our research work in cell telephony and advances at this institution.” Shown at left are Henderson, NJIT President Robert A. Altenkirch; Vice President for Academic and Student Services and Albert Dorman Honors College Dean Joel S. Bloom; and Vice President for University Advancement Charles R. Dees, Jr.  >>
