Light, sound, time, 28 columns.
Paris, FR & European Parliament, Brussels, BE. 2016
Gyrotope is a large circle of columns that describes a sculptural volume unfolding over time.
It uses ephemeral and intangible materials, light and sound, to formalize an experience based on motion perception. It develops spatially the principles of a film: a number of discrete parts experienced in succession, become a unique, continuous element.
Gyrotope functions as a perimeter that can be traversed. This creates a malleable experience of scale: the work shifts between object and environment depending on the observer’s position inside, outside, or at the boundary of the work.
Gyrotope is an original commission for the cultural programme of the Grand Paris Express and will be soon presented again in Europe.
