2015 Three Perpetual Chords
Three Perpetual Chords was commissioned to replace Barbara Hepworth’s Two Forms (Divided Circle), after it was stolen from Dulwich park in 2011.

The three cast iron sculptures describe the 2:1 (octave), 3:2 (perfect fifth), and 4:3 (perfect fourth) harmonic, intervals popular in western musical theory. They are arranged to follow one after the other, creating a new route for visitors through the park.
