’AIRWAVE’ 2016 Maquette

2016, 1/2 minute
Model and inspiration for a large suspended boat sculpture made of wire mesh.
Model or maquette for a large Arabic dhow sculpture commissioned for Le Royal Meridien, Dubai, UAE, The Hub Latitude (Reception Area):
‘AIRWAIVE’ 2017 - see all photos of the large sculpture below.
Derived from Arabic dhow designs ‘AIRWAVE‘ is conceived as more than a sculptural rendition of a traditional vessel – an abstract interpretation of an Arabic Dhow - a floating (suspended) white-painted stainless steel-mesh composition, approx. 7 metres height.

"It’s an exploding apparition which draws attention to the tenuous line between liquid, air and that which is solid – water, mist, cloud, even ice. Its anti-gravitational composition ultimately expresses a vision and notion of invisible forces which surround us and which form part of everything which exists – electromagnetic and radio waves, light waves, wind and liquid shock waves as well as gravity and its counterpart relentlessly, persuasively, explosively shaping and forcing us to go with the flow."
