Renn and Thacker - A Spire

It is the negative space, the space between the shiny pilars, that was relevant to the sculptors when creating this site-specific piece. Renn and Thacker visited Peterborough when the Ikea building was being constructed and they noted the flat landscape, the expanse of sky and land, and how this was broken up and linked by the scattering of church spires along the horizon.
Looking through the sculpture we are able to form a perfect spire shape and as we move around the piece we can change the shape and the view, looking into, around and through.
