Caribdis

This work was commissioned by CPFL, an energy company in Campinas, Brazil. Most of Brazil's power comes from water in lakes by means of turbines that generate electricity. These are buried out of sight, deep within the recesses of hydroelectric dams. Caribdis celebrates this type of energy in visible form. It features a swirling vortex that symbolises the power and movement of a turbine. By deploying the vortex within a transparent cylinder, one can fully experience the drama and movement within.
