Day 237

This is the really rather cool piece of sculpture within Darlington. It's a water feature too and the "S" shapes pivot so as the water collects, it tips the balance. They are also on a slight incline so the water doesn't quite run the same throughout the piece, meaning the movement is out of sync. I love that this creates an element of unpredictability. Despite being a picture-straightening-anally-retentive-symmetrical-pattern finder, I love stumbling across these examples of chaotic things. There is no pattern. They are truly of nature. There may be cycles and structure but within the best of these there are ghosts in the machine.
