SPIRAL WATERS, colored Shot Crete or Gunite, tile, water, 6.5’ x 40’ x 28’

The spiral form is used as a symbol of both introspection and continual growth. This would be a user/viewer interactive piece. The waterfall at the terminus of the spiral would produce a calming sound that would echo gently through the space. The spiral form could also be seen from any upper floor windows facing the work.
