“25 meters tall, Ether (Equality) is one of Nawa’s largest sculptures. The stainless steel sculpture, glowing in a pale silver pink, is composed of polyhedrons, echoing the polyhedral dome of La Seine Musicale behind it and rises like a beacon leading the way to Seguin Island and its future.
Ether is formed by extracting the form of a droplet dripping to the ground, inverting it upside down, and piling it up in a random sequence. he continuous drops of various shapes create a visual rhythm that echoes through the Seine River and spreads it further to the world. Gravity and harmony perform together and come into interplay with Earth.”
