The sign for infinity - the lemniscate

infinity

Having been invited to propose a land art project, I acknowledged that there were also some good locations for sculpture. One of my first thoughts was about the elongated hill with the large white name of the park its the slopes. The row of trees on the summit has grown together into a natural sculptural form. This hill is very visible from the highway; it announces the park from a distance - the north as well as from the south. I wonder whether the present descriptive text should maybe be replaced by a monumental sculptural gesture, which in itself would become the icon of the Nilai Memorial Park. What I envision is a reclining form, the projection of which represents the sign for infinity - the lemniscate. By letting it rest on this hill, as observed from the moving vehicles on the highway, it will subtly change form with its infinite movement around its center, encircling and bisecting the row of trees in a never ending oscillating movement of a spatial sinus wave turning back to its origin, constantly recreating itself.

And finally - below is the sculpture which, before venturing to Kuala Lumpur, I first thought of proposing to add to the collection of Kuala Lumpur Nilai Sculpture Park. It is a two by four meter area, two meters high, into which one can walk. Like two hands the curved weatherproof steel sheets enclose the space, which has been delineated but not closed.
