English National Ballet

This is a motion sculpture at the new home of the English National Ballet in East London.  A kinetic structure is proposed: an assemblage of three delicate elements slowly transforms itself playing out a graceful balletic motion in the square. The sculpture consists of three, twenty-metre-long carbon fibre spars, connected via rotating axis points, enabling the sculpture to move in a subtle dance-like motion. The project was developed in collaboration with robotics specialists, aerodynamic engineers and specialist art fabricators.
