ExoCentric Spirits Indoor, suspended Light and Motion mobile. ExoCentric Spirits Metal #1: This particular style has been commissioned as ExoCentric Metal #1 by the Royal Caribbean Cruise Line Company for their new building in Eugene, Oregon, USA - Installation of this approx 1,000 Lbs. suspended Mobile consisting of 160 rings is November 2005. ExoCentric Spirits Metal #2: In December 2006 ExoCentric Metal #2 was commissioned for the main elevator lobby of the Union Square re-development in Kowloon - Hong Kong by MTR Limited. Now it is called ELEMENTS MALL. The large 12 Module, 48 ring Assembly was installed November 2007 and can now be seen in the METAL area of the mall. ExoCentric Spirits Metal #3 - This particular style has been commissioned as ExoCentric Metal #3 by the UPMC Children's Hospital in Pittsburgh for their new building lobby, Pittsburgh, USA - Installation of this largest EXO suspended Mobile was March 2009. These colorful disc modules in 4-5 different sizes and colors have color-matched translucent gel lenses, so that any light from above leaves a gently moving and ever- changing light and color compositions on the floor, as well as eye-catching colored reflections on the ceiling. The modular structure allows for a custom vertical and lateral volume distribution and sizing for any particular Indoor space, so there are interesting views from all sides, as well as from below. This colorful and impressively large-scale, complex sculpture is most always in motion, and always changing shape attracting attention and delighting onlookers.
