Overview

This 11′ high sculpture was originally created in 3D Cad as a complex vortex or whirlwind and then fabricated in my studio from 105 curvilinear waterjet 1/4″ corten steel plates. The negative space resulting from spaces between the plates creates more or less tranparency when viewing the piece from different angles.

Goals

The piece was chosen as a focal point in formal garden within a semicircular niche at the building entry facade.

Process

The curvilinear geometry of the sculpture and planter provides a focal point for the building entry. The sculpture also gives viewers on floors 2 and 3 an interesting overhead view from the north windows.
