Vortex for Lofoten, 1999, 1999

landscape

natural phenomenon

In this work, water in a transparent cylinder is spun into a vortex nearly as tall as the container. The viewer, unable to view the surface of the water due to the height of the artwork, perceives the vortex’s void as a slowly undulating, three-dimensional cone at the centre of the tank.
