DNA, 2003, Leeds Nuffield Hospital

High tension cable, stainless steel, oak, slate, glass. 6m high, 600mm diameter

 

The sculpture represents a strand of D.N.A. animating the lobby for the transient population of patients and visitors who move through the building. Four elements represent the four bases that comprise D.N.A. The cubes are made of stainless steel, oak, glass and slate.

The simplicity of the installation's structure is reminiscent of scientific diagrams.

The whole is strung on tensile cables reaching 6m from ceiling to floor in the front lobby of the building.
