Fundamental to all life, the torus is a self-organising system that expands and contracts simultaneously. Toroidal patterns are produced on every level of nature, from an electron spinning around a nucleus, the Earth’s magnetic field and the shape of galaxies. Fashioned from PVC pipe, this lightweight sculpture evokes these processes as it spins in the wind, giving the viewer the illusion of expansion and contraction.
