‘Maquette for A Turning Mutability’ is a model for a work proposed for outside the museum which would have been approximately 9 meters high.
The sculpture would have been highly lit from inside and outside the structure, thus giving it differing visual states that, in part, would respond to daylight and nightlight environments and talk of the liminality and metaphysics of such environments. John Newling
The upturned spinning house may represent the transformation of the former military hospital to a Museum; the light a metaphor for creation, knowledge and social change.
