Water and light, poetry and myth… creative power embodied in a light sculpture.

To the Ancient Greeks Okeanos was the primeval god of waters, the immense sea/river that springs from itself and in itself flows again, encompassing the whole world in water. Homer’s poetry makes him into the beginning of all things, the eternal origin of all the seas, rivers and springs – in an endless cycle of flowing life energy. Les First recounts the creative power of water and light, of poetry and myth in a light sculpture made of contrast and harmony, where seashells, coral branches, and sea creatures bring to life an amphora’s sinuous, ancient curves. An innovative LED system adds light to the black and white fine ceramic, reinventing the shimmering atmosphere of ancient seas.
