The Spinning Chandelier – Rodney Graham

The concept for the public art at Vancouver House was born from the idea of doing a sculptural interpretation of Rodney Graham’s film piece Torqued Chandelier Release. Torqued Chandelier Release was inspired by Sir Isaac Newton’s famous water-bucket experiment, which explored the nature of rotational motion and now its physical counterpart will find its home in Vancouver. Spinning Chandelier is by far the most difficult work of art we have ever done. Fortunately, City of Vancouver Engineering have adopted this project as their own. We are now working together to execute it and in the spring of 2019 Vancouver will have a special moment that will draw people from all around the world. A film representation of the Spinning Chandelier is on display at the Fight for Beauty Exhibition during public hours.
