Relation of Escaping Flatland sculpture to the work of David Smith, American Sculptor

The Escaping Flatland sculpture, currently on exhibit in Los Angeles, seems to have similarities to the outdoor sculpture of David Smith (1906 - 1965, artcyclopedia and the Smithsonian)

Specifically, with regard to the 1961 - 1965 body of work (28 pieces) created from square and rectangular hollow blocks ("cubi") of stainless steel by David Smith. The artist intended the shapes and materials to contrast and interact with outdoor landscape.

Was David Smith's work an inspiration for "Escaping Flatland" or is this just a happy coincidence.
