Three Elements

Located at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel, this sculptural installation consists of three arching and twisting forms that rise elegantly from a bed of stones. Water cascades down the textured surfaces of these sculptures, creating sheets of water that shimmer and flow, enhancing the sense of an oasis in the desert environment.

Designed to symbolize both a literal and metaphorical oasis, the sculptures are set within a lushly landscaped area, juxtaposing the arid desert climate with a visual and sensory haven. This representation is particularly poignant at the Weizmann Institute, a forefront center of scientific research, where the installation echoes the institution's role as a hub of knowledge and innovation—essentially, an oasis of learning and discovery.

The use of water in this artistic context not only adds a refreshing element to the environment but also metaphorically reflects the flowing, ever-evolving nature of scientific inquiry. The installation invites contemplation and serves as a reminder of the transformative power of research and education in nurturing intellectual growth and fostering scientific advancements.
