An exciting new contemporary sculpture will be built at Snape Maltings next year to give visitors a different way of looking at the landscape.
Myriad – created by artist David Rickard and architect Germano Di Chello – was chosen from more than 170 entries in a competition backed by the Coastal Communities Fund to design a family-friendly viewing sculpture for the Henry Moore Lawn next to the concert hall.
The winning design is a tall box-like cradle containing mirrors at different angles and pointing in various directions which will produce unusual views from a wide area.
Rickard and Di Chello said: “A wide range of views will be collected, from distant vistas across the marshes to new perspectives of the more immediate surroundings.
“These various viewpoints will be reflected to form a multi-perspective collage that constantly shifts as visitors move around and within the sculpture.

“The sculpture and the views it reflects will be able to be enjoyed from afar and visitors will also be welcome to enter on foot and wheelchair to explore the views gathered inside.
“Many of the high level mirrors will be complemented with reflectors below, at a child-friendly height.’
