Using Bouncy Balls to Create Adventures with Form and Space

‘Adventures with Form in Space’ is the theme of this year’s Balnaves Foundation Sculpture Project in Australia. This piece by Nike Savvas dubbed’ Atomic: full of love, full of wonder, is easily my favourite. The room suspended bouncy balls held in place on tiny nylon wire is meant to appear like a room of free framed atoms in a beautiful spectrum from red to blue. Occasionally a set of industrial fans blow the whole thing into a slight movement leaving viewers in awe as it settles back together into almost perfect form. This mesmerizing piece produces an extraordinary optical effect the brightly coloured bouncy balls swing within the gallery space.
