Spheres of Transformation
by Dan Cohn & David Kitts
Enigmatic in nature, the Spheres consists of three large, highly illuminated rings moving in a fashion both hypnotic and surreal. The combination of lights, speed, and types of motion creates a stunning visual effect designed to instill a sense of wonder. We have used mechanical and electronic means to reproduce a large gyroscope that in its initial conception was intended to mimic the spinning movements of fire performers. This machine is to be raised eighteen feet above the ground to crown a steel structure faced with stone and built in the style of a gothic temple. The Spheres offer an opportunity to unhinge the perceptual portals and step inside a place where reality manifests in the convergence of beliefs.
