Spherophyte

Alex Sanson


Inspired by flower-like shapes, Spherophyte is a kinetic sculpture of vast proportions that unfurls in a celebratory flourishing of near-constant motion. Simultaneously meditative and dynamic, euphoric and contemplative, it imparts a sense of captivating, geometric wonder.

With 48 moving arms like gently swishing, shimmering petals, it comes alive under lights, ‘breathing’ in an endless, effortless cycle, folding and unfolding as shapes intersect, combine and dissolve. Reflecting the extraordinary complexity of life, Spherophyte encourages awe, delight, joy and reverence, regardless of whether viewed up close or from afar.
