Spherophyte Kinetic Sculpture by Alex Sanson

Spherophyte is a new kinetic sculpture created by Australian artist Alex Sanson, whose artworks were feature on our previous post on Feb. 17.  With the height of 6.6 meters and the diameter of 4.6 meters, Spherophyte was conceived of as the final flowering of the idea, both in form and concept. Its form is indeed inspired by flower like shapes, with all the underlying geometry based on segments of spheres (hence the Sphero – sphere, phyte – plant). Its motion, unlike the previous two works, rarely stops entirely for a breath, preferring instead to glide on in a celebratory unfurling, more of a meditation through dance than breath. Its moving elements open and blossom first in phase with each other move then out of phase in semi-independent motion then come back and together and synchronise once again. Spherophyte is intended to be peaceful and contemplative, yet joyful and dynamic.
