High As A Kite...

Helen and Ivan Morrison are well known for their innovative outdoor installations.
Their 'Little Shining Man' 3D Kinetic Sculpture which is also a kite, is a result of a collaboration between them, London architectural designer Sarah Reading and Birmingham design studio, Queen & Crawford.
Each of the twenty three thousand pieces of printed composite fabric that make up this sculpture are connected with a nylon joint
and carbon fibre rods.
The stunning sculpture took sixteen months
to complete.
It can be seen in the atrium of Dandara's
new Castle Quay development at the UK's St Heliers on the Channel Islands. .
The owners promise to fly it once a year at Jersey's St Aubins Bay.
Beautiful isn't it...
