Nebulous

Alex Sanson


Designed to encourage a moment of reflection and wonder in the midst of a dynamic public space, Nebulous is a colourful, intricately patterned globe mounted on a steel tower. It is formed from a three-dimensional nebulous latticework of delicate steel arms that are accentuated by thousands of oversized, glittering holographic sequins! 

When brought to life, in a slowly throbbing, living cycle, the globe expands into a much larger ellipsoid, with shapes intersecting and meshing. Up close, the intricate mechanism adds to the intrigue. From a distance, the mechanism recedes, leaving a layered, pulsing sphere transforming into an ellipsoid and back again in an endless, effortless cycle.
