1990 - glass, bronze, aluminium

On the park's periphery the artist chose a pool surrounded by two hillsides and crossed by a bridge, under which the water flows by on its way to the main lake. At the center of the pond forty-one bronze cones have been arranged in a spiral pattern, just level with the water surface. They hold up large, irregularly shaped plates of glass which form a base for aluminum bars placed in concentric circles. The visual effect is as if a stone had been thrown into the water and suddenly froze, perpetually recording the form of concentric circles.
The work is inspired in part by the Atlantic Codex (see 1041 recto, Giunti, Florence) in which Da Vinci describes the behavior of water.
