Sculpture

Lit by led lights, this sculpture at Keele University is striking. Spires of reflective steel radiate outwards. Each line of them diminishes in size as them move outwards. It seems energetic, yet constrained. Like a frozen fountain. At the centre is a low metal plinth or seat. I wanted to walk into the centre of it and sit or stand on it. But thought it might be too fragile. A peaceful place to contemplate the universe perhaps?
