The concept of the curvilinear lines was picked up from the initial landscape design and taken further to engage the waters' edge. By placing the sculptures in the water it opens up the space and makes connections between land and water. While the two elements of steps and spirals may compliment each other they can also be seen as opposites. The steps may be seen as logic, order and man-made while the spiral has reference to intuition, the organic and the natural.
