Shoot is an interpretation of a great arc of water. The sculptural form expresses the implied momentum of a trajectory of water, rising steeply and forcefully, only to reach it’s pinnacle and burst over, falling deeply, forming a perfect arc.
Starting as a thin burst, sprouting up vertically from the ground, which surges forward, spreads in width and dives back down vertically over a pool. The visual and physical thrill of the overhanging, seemingly unbalanced, large mass, incites a double-take at the impossibly balanced sculpture that captures a moment of an intangible moving liquid.
The alternate bursts provide individual footholds and the edge of the sculpture curls inwards offering a handrail. The lustrous silver leaf glistens in the overhead sun, and reflects the water below, delineating and constantly changing the undulating fluid shape.
