This kinetic light sculpture, commissioned by whisky brand The Famous Grouse as part of their “What would you like to be famous for?” campaign, features lasercut rings of copperplated aluminium suspended in hyperbolic geometry on a tension net of thin stainless steel wires. The form of the sculpture was inspired by whisky swilling in a glass.
Various answers to the question were lasercut from each ring so that a robotically controlled central light casts silhouettes of the answers onto the surrounding walls. Originally installed in the historic Welsh Chapel on Shaftesbury Avenue in London, the sculpture has now found a permanent home in the centre of the foyer of the Concert Hall in Perth, Scotland.
