Ever Changing

Art In Newcastle City Centre, Tyne And Wear

An abstract sculpture by Eilis O'Connell of a conical, polished stainless-steel sculpture.

Located at the junction of Bath Lane and Westgate Road, and right outside the Tyne Theatre, is a curious conical sculpture made out of stainless steel.

The art exhibit is called Ever Changing by Eilis O'Connell and was commissioned by Newcastle's Grainger Town Partnership to revitalise the area, with it finally being installed in 2005.

The artist, Eilis Ms O'Connell said - "From the very beginning, I thought it would be interesting that the site was tilted, and the idea for this sculpture responds to that. The surface of the sculpture is mirror-polished. Its title, Ever Changing, refers to the fact that the environment will be continually reflected on the surface of the sculpture. It will mirror the surrounding architecture, the changing skies, the movement of traffic and people."

If you're wondering, it's set at an angle of 73 degrees.

Other art exhibits that were commissioned as part of this initiative were the Man With Potential Selves by Sean Henry and Nine Things To Do On A Bench, by Cate Watkinson and Julia Darling.

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue Pele tower up a remote hill or a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.
