Project Description

WAVE 15 meter floating sculpture is about the increasing amount of frequencies and waves of information which invisibly surround us. It’s red because in the spectrum of visible light, that is the most comparable wavelength; blue wavelangth’s are much closer together for example.

WAVE is constructed so that a section of the sculpture sits beneath the waterline, pulled down by weights. Each section of the sculpture is connected by a chain so will move independently, responding to movement of water and the wind, creating gentle curves. The weights below the waterline mean that it will always right itself, whenever the wind blows. It is anchored down to the lake bed at either end.

The trial float at Mudeford went really well. We have information on BBC website, Youtube & Press release.

This piece has been months in the making. Commissioned by a private collector for one of the lakes on his estate in North Yorkshire. The estate will be open to the public in early April, please visit www.himalayangarden.com for more information.
