METAMORPHOSIS 1/6 

METAMORPHOSIS

Commissioned for the International Marketplace, Osaka, Japan.

This artwork reveals sculptures within a sculpture during its 38-minute automated program.

2/6 

METAMORPHOSIS

A ring of illuminated ellipses at the sculpture's base is animated to suggest the movement of water.

3/6 

METAMORPHOSIS

A 4 m (12') ball of rock glows and splits open as if volcanically, to reveal a telescoping stalk that rises 10 meters (33').

Out of the stalk blooms a floral form, followed by a choreography of umbrellas which open and close, lit from within.

METAMORPHOSIS

Finally a spiky globe descends from the ceiling, puncturing the flower and driving it back into the rock ball.
