Centripetal, Centrifugal (maquette)


Centripetal and centrifugal are opposing forces, but when form are in motion, both can exist simultaneously, and this has always interested me. Here, I explore the interactions between five forms in a group. Each individual is, on its own, out of equilibrium, yet as a group they remain upright, thanks both to their connected and opposing masses (physically) and to their suggested motions (gesturally).

I plan to adapt this idea into a large-scale outdoor piece in steel next year.

This is a work I created during my one-year fellowship at the Chateau de la Napoule in southern France, as part of being awarded the 2022-2023 Prix Henry Clews from the La Napoule Art Foundation.
