Artistic Water Fountain Sculptures by Malgorzata Chodakowska
“My fountains spread the pure joy of life, combining the element of water with the raw material – bronze.” Malgorzata has been sculpting for 30 years. It takes her up to 2-6 months to complete each sculpture. The creation of this stunning artwork starts by modelling it out of clay. Then to turn it into fountain, the sculptor pours these sculptures into bronze. Finally, water adds the element of motion.
Museum of the Moon
Museum of the Moon is a new touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram. Measuring seven meters in diameter, the moon features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. At an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each centimeter of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 5km of the moon’s surface. The installation is a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound composition created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award winning composer Dan Jones. Each venue also programs their own series lunar inspired events beneath the moon.
