2020 SWELL ARTWORK – The Five Elements Orrery, Hugh Burrell 

Where an ‘Orrery’ originally sought to bring the Universe into focus for consideration, The Five Elements Orrery puts the original elements of creation above us. Seeking to remind viewers that the Earth is where our future lies, we shouldn’t plan our future with the stars as an escape plan. A Kinetic Wind and Light Sculpture standing 6m tall enveloping a 7m circumference, within which the lazy and smooth sweeping arcs of the Orrery’s spinning arms can be witnessed and enjoyed.

Come and see for yourself at SWELL Sculpture Festival, Pacific Parade, Currumbin 11-20 September.
