painted steel, stainless steel, water.

As a worthy descendant of those great “artist-cum-engineers” who, from Leonardo da Vinci to Vladimir Tatlin, invariably combined science with artistic creation, Tom Carr developed the recurrent themes of his works in his earliest offerings: a play of geometric forms in space and an exploration of the concepts of balance and perspective. Discs, polygons helicoids and other spirals are the components of his elegant, complex “machines” that attest to both his love of exact science and his fascination for cosmology and formal symbolism. Installed in the Agora of the Société Générale headquarters, the colossal Seed, Helix, Mirror of Water creates a dynamic ascending movement.
