This beautiful and inspiring sculpture was designed by Julian Wild and brought to life with the help of Arc Fab Sussex. The design is the largest public sculpture in Oxford and was commissioned by the University of Oxford and the Li Ka Shing Big Data Institute. The sculpture is made in two parts which are close but not quite touching in the middle. The main sections are 6mm mild steel plates welded into 400mm hollow box sections, while the centre is made of highly reflective stainless steel box sections welded into a fragmented pattern.

The sculpture has been shortlisted for the Marsh Award for Excellence in Public Sculpture.

Julian Wild graduated with a BA in Fine Art Sculpture from Kingston University in 1995 and has been the vice president of the royal society of sculptors since 2013. The You can see more of his impressive work on his site below.

I worked with Arc Fab Sussex on a large scale sculpture commission for The University of Oxford. Toby and the team fabricated and installed a complex structure to a high level of finish on time and on budget.
