Music of the Spheres has been especially made for this exhibition as a collaboration with Jeff Rogers and Mimi Norrgren. Inspired by Sir John Soane and referencing his
interest in classical architecture and proportion we have used a system of spheres that
increase in size according to the Fibonacci sequence. This internal chamber is
shrouded by a cone formed from an Isosceles triangle of Golden Proportions.
The addition of moving water to this spatial game adds a time dynamic that echoes the ebband flow of natural processes (natural geometry being the source of the ‘Golden Ratio’)
To the Ancient Greeks and Vitruvius, proportion and rhythm were one, and the idea of ‘symmetry’ was to bring together a harmonious correlation between the whole and its parts.As a traveller, collector and pioneer in classical studies, John Soane would have followed this concept and considered architecture to be‘frozen music’.
