Forthcoming: Fibonacci Flower at Sculpture in Context

Once again I am collaborating with Madeleine Hellier on a new large scale outdoor installation for Sculpture in Context 2014 at National Botanic Gardens opening 4th September.

The Fibonacci Sequence has as long intrigued scientists, botanists and mathmeticians as it has inspired artists, designers and craftsmen in their creations – from the detailed depiction of botanical illustration to its abstraction through painting and sculpture to the world of design and craft. Thread and Nail Design – a seemingly kitsch homestead craft has long amazed us both as artists and is itself based on complex mathematical formula. The sculpture – Fibonacci Flower – brings these elements together through as an enlarged Fibonacci spiral flower enlarged and placed back in context in nature alongside examples of the Fibonacci sequence to form a high visual impact sculptural installation.

We will create a highly visual intricate thread and nail installation in the context of the Botanic Gardens which will allow visitors to forensically explore and discover for themselves the mathematics of nature. The sculpture will have a dual visual impact in its intricacy and construction at ground level and also when viewed from the overlooking windows of the exhibition space of the visitors centre.
