CYLINDER HAVING A BALL

A continuation of Tumbling Cube (2019) this trio was loosely inspired by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s story of the Little Prince’s drawing of a boa constrictor digesting an elephant (not a hat, as grown-ups saw it). This time I wanted to explored the movement of a ball through a cylinder, but rather than move, the ball ended up growing.

Exhibited at the NZ Academy of Fine Arts, June 2021
