In The News

Yesterday's Irish Times paid tribute to the work of artist Petroc Sesti who has produced work such as Event Horizon,  one in a series of sculptures  in which a vortex appears to have been captured in a glass vessel. A whirlpool spirals inside a giant bell jar, suspended in perpetual motion. Sesti creates his vortex sculptures such as Event Horizon, Vanishing Point and Perpetual Void using optic oil, which has the appearance of water.
