‘cultar’ is formed of a cluster of repeated components into a dynamic and energetic shape. The location in the central void gives two different viewing points. From below the shapes echo images of cells through microscopes, with the sky above as a backdrop; from the first floor it is seen as if a flock of birds,or leaves, caught in a gust of wind and frozen before the viewer.

{slight} were engaged with the public art project from the inception to help advise and support the steering committee with technical and design expertise. The concept of designing a sculptural piece for the lighting void came about through discussion and development of the whole project concept. The resulting artwork is striking in scale, perspective, colour and materials and lends a contemporary appeal to the central space within the building.
