Wave, 2000, Saltash Millennium Park, Cornwall
Commissioned by Groundwork and Caradon County Council
Situated by the river Tamar it takes its inspiration from the Brunel Railway Bridge which can be seen from the site. Aluminium fins slot onto a central axis, bolted at each end. Glass magnifying lenses distort the landscape giving the local viewer a new perspective on the ex-landfill park.
The fins which comprise the sculpture were milled at the nearby Devonport Royal Dockyards, using state of the art technology, normally used to make components for nuclear submarines. This process echoed the technical excellence and industrial prowess the area was famous for during the Brunel era.
