Charybdis Vortex Water Sculpture

August 6, 2008


In Charybdis the circular movement of water inside a transparent acrylic cylinder forms an air-core vortex in the centre. Steps wrap around the cylinder and allow spectators to view the vortex from above.

A high level of water filtration is essential for maintaining transparency and thereby expressing the drama of the vortex.  click on the link to see the video.
