2013 SO FAR

Rebecca Newnham

We have had such an amazing year so far, and its only May.

Wave Sculpture

We were lucky enough to have the first beautiful sunny day for quite some time for the installation of WAVE our 15 metre floating sculpture for a Yorkshire Sculpture Park, which was featured on the BBC.
WAVE commissioned by Peter Roberts of The Himalayan Gardens & Sculpture Park was installed on the 15th of April Nr Ripon, North Yorkshire, and opens to the public from the 27th April.

WAVE considers the invisible information, which surrounds us, such as phone signals and TV frequencies. Rebecca explained "The sculpture is red because that’s the most comparable wavelength to WAVE in the colour spectrum, so we are linking visible and invisible information in one sculpture. This shade of red had been chosen for this particular lake".

WAVE is made from fibreglass with a concealed stainless steel structure and weights, which ensures the buoyant sculpture floats at the desired height. These weights ensure the structure rights itself however strong the wind and water current. The sections are chained together and anchored at either end, which allows the wind to draw the sculpture into different curves.

FLEDGE; INCREMENTS OF FLIGHT will be exhibited for two days only, as part of Arts in Motion, organised by Kinetic Bournemouth at the Winter Gardens, Bournemouth, starting today, May 11th, hope to see you there.
