Michelangelo Arteaga. Spiral of Life
25 Sep - 27 Oct|
St Paul’s Cathedral|
Spanish artist Michelangelo Arteaga’s work Spiral of Life is part of Stations of Water, an art exhibition featuring nine contemporary artists in conjunction with justwater2017.org
Spiral of Life is a larger-than-life seashell resembling the Nautilus, a creature whose core is shaped by the Fibonacci spiral curve found everywhere in nature.
From the exterior, Spiral of Life appears to be solid, impassable…but by gazing deeply into the interior, one can imagine diving beneath the surface, surrounded by sea, and looking to the sunlight.
