Petroc Sesti – Vanishing Point

Petroc Sesti - Vanishing Point

Petroc Sesti has established an amazing installation at the Paul Kasmin Gallery. “Vanishing Point” is a large glass sphere filled with optical fluid that is stirred by a turbine. The kinetic movement of this large liquid lens moves the light captured from the striped walls in an undulating rhythm. The effect is one of a pulsing vortex in a static environment. I love the interaction between the sculpture and the architecture. Notice how the light in the room is focused away from the central sculptural element.

Another good reason to head over to the gallery.
