Cosmic Cycle by Angela Conner FRBS

Price on Application

‘Cosmic Cycle’ by Angela Conner FRBS
Kinetic Water Sculpture
Stainless Steel and Concrete, 1996

Location: Bishopric, Horsham Town Centre, West Sussex.

The sculpture, known locally as ‘The Rising Universe’ or Shelley’s Fountain’, is a 45ft wide plaza feature originally consisting of four satellite water mobiles and one 28ft high centre piece. The sphere rises and falls with weight of the water, dispensing a torrent of 7 ½ tons of water in a rhythmic cycle. The sculpture was installed in 1996 to celebrate the bicentenary of the birth of the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley who was born near Horsham.

An extract from Shelley's 1817 poem 'Mont Blanc' appears on a plaque on the sculpture: “The everlasting universe of things Flows through the mind, and rolls its rapid waves, Now dark – now glittering – now reflecting gloom – Now lending splendour, where from secret springs The source of human thought its tribute brings Of waters, – with a sound but half its own, Such as a feeble brook will oft assume In the wild woods, among the mountains lone, Where waterfalls around it leap for ever, Where woods and winds contend, and a vast river Over its rocks ceaselessly bursts and raves”.
