‘Sycamore Seed Cloud’  A new amazingly dynamic Kinetic Sycamore Sculpture for 2015.

Sycamore seed cloud is a visual feast of eight flying seeds based precisey so as to fly within millimetres of each other.

This work is a twofold homage to nature, the seed form and the wind. In the natural world, the two work in perfect harmony, the seed having evolved over millions of years into a finely tuned wing. This harmony is present throughout nature, it is harmony that we humans strive for, and sometimes struggle to find.
