'Before and After Science'
Kammgarn Commission
3m x 1.5m x 1.5m
Frankfurt. 2001

To celebrate the 725th anniversary of the city of kaiserslautern, 200 fish were decorated by local and international people then positioned around the city.

The proposal was to give the fibreglass fish a sense of life by incorporating movement. I cut the fish in half, then into over fifty seperate pieces. Each was hung accurately using nylon from a frame attached to the foyer ceiling. Eventually the fish was re-assembled back to its original form. The passing wind currents created by the space and the people in that space allowed the pieces to move. A light was placed in the centre of the fish to allow the movement of the pieces and the gaps to be accentuated.
