Following a previous commission of this design that was finished in primary yellow, Thomas was approached by Norfolk Garden designer Stephane Lustig to create a similar installation of sculptures for his beautiful gardens. The scale of the three vortex forms were made complimentary to the scale of other key architectural components and also nearby bushes/tree’s. The very bold colour was chosen to compliment and work in contrast to planting and the general greenery, the outcome of which could not have been better.
Thomas Joynes’s ‘Quantum Vortices’ is made with three sculptural forms known singly as ‘Vortex’. The genesis of this form comes from the application of the ratio 1.618, known as Fibonacci. The beautiful and naturally occurring effects of Fibonacci appear everywhere in nature and are synonymous with aesthetic perfection. In developing this design, the mathematical principle presented through Fibonacci were used to dictate the amount of rotation that one ring moves around a central point of rotation, in relation to the ring preceding it. With this method, a static form is given a beautiful sense of kinetic energy and motion as the amount of rotation increases when your focus is led up and around the form from the base to the top.
