Roger Mann

Kinetic Water Sculpture, 1998

In response to a request from the River & Rowing Museum, HS Projects presented a brief to the museum to commission a kinetic sculpture sited in the main entrance, to relate to the museum’s collection and also act as an entertaining and informative fund-raising device for visitors. 

 

Working with both the museum and architect David Chipperfield, HS Projects commissioned Roger Mann, following an extensive selection process, to design a site-specific kinetic sculpture that utilises sound, water and light.  Mann’s sculpture captures the picturesque effect of a rowing eight on the river surface accompanied by the sounds of various waterfowl.  The sculpture is animated by money entering a collection box.  HS Projects worked with Roger Mann from concept design to completion.
