Torus

twisted torus # 045

A roundabout that combines a dynamic water show, with a static complex statue geometry. Creating together an illusion of movement and variability that intensifies as travel around. The twisting torus-shaped concrete structure is constructed of only one identical module and completes its shape into an infinite ring consisting of continuous surfaces. The structure appears to float across a quiet water level that drains uniformly into the perimeter collecting channel. In the center of the square is a water-controlled nozzles system, that is placed in a circle and operates at a timed pace and intensity to create a unique geometric water jet show. An integrated water control lighting system creates an alternating visual appearance between day and night.
