Ecliptic Millennium Arch

Ecliptic Millennium Arch


Napier, New Zealand (NZ)
This sculpture celebrates the new millennium and is made from a steel arch of round pipe. At the top two large, highly polished, domed stainless steel discs are fastened back to back. They reflect what is behind the viewer, either the rising sun over the sea, or the lights and Norfolk Island Pines of Marine Parade. The work is lined up to where the sun rose on the day of the dawning of the new millennium. At night it is lit by rings of flexible neon tube between the two discs, which shine out like a halo or rising moon or even an eclipse.
