'Sung-Woon'

'Sung-Woon' (translated from Korean means constellation or more literally, cloud of stars) was commissioned specially for the Gwangju Biennale, South Korea and is an example of the way in recent years, Peter has attempted to combine geometric order with chaotic form, in order to reveal natural processes from the inside, through understanding their operation rather than simply their appearance. The eroded boulder is mathematically chaotic being the result of millions of years of natural erosion. The Fibonacci sequence pattern which is superimposed onto this random shape relates to growth patterns in plants and has to adapt and distort to accommodate the random shape of the stone. It is hoped that this work achieves the kind of balance between order and chaos found in nature, like a constellation of stars on a random ground.

The other is sited 30 miles away to the south, as the Two Moor's Way leaves the Dartmoor National Park, 2 miles to the north of Drewsteigtnon. Commissioned by Devon County Council
