Commisssioned M&G Real Estate as a landmark sculpture to mark the entrance to their new commercial building Forbury Place in Reading. The sculpture takes the form of a pair of twisting helical forms, each carved from a solid block of granite originally weighing thirty tonnes. The forms appear to be in a continual state of flux: when moving past them they change dramatically in shape and relationship to each other, which in turn increases the optical effect of convergence and divergence. There is also an uncanny relationship between the pair's inner surfaces which ask to be moved together, to complete a unity or form, a double helix. Powerful up-lighters at night bring yet another change to how the sculpture is perceived.
