William Pye Water Scupture


Morphogenesis, defined as 'the emergence of specific form during development'. This title was suggested to me by my son-in-law, Peter Weigele, a molecular biologist working at MIT, in Boston.

Two clearly interlockable forms stand slightly apart as if recently detached from each other, suggesting they might be in the process of evolving and multiplying. All external and visible surfaces of the sculpture are covered with continuously flowing water animating the forms, the movement visible from afar.

I feel that as my shapes have become increasingly organic and less geometric they are capable of standing alone as sculpture in their own right, without water, harking back to the mirror polished pieces of the nineteen seventies.
