Aurum sphere is an open sphere produced through the interplay of two black stainless-steel spirals that coil in opposite directions, one inside the other. This framework supports swirling ridges of black and gold, which are composed of innumerable triangles that populate the interval between the two spirals and encompass a hollow core filled with light from two LED lamps at the poles. Each of these triangles is a pane of hand-blown black glass, one side of which has been covered in gold leaf. As the viewer moves about the work, the shifting angle of her view alters the relative positions of the triangles and the gaps between them, causing the sphere to appear as if it were constantly changing.
