Time and Space the Speed of Light

Public Sculptures by Andrew Rogers, as seen in 07829, Sant Josep de sa Talaia, Spain

Item Details
‘Time and Space – The Speed of Light’ is the 51st land art structure in the ‘Rhythms of Life’ land art project – a series of connected drawings on the Earth which span the globe.

Thirteen solid basalt columns forming a Fibonacci sequence located on the edge of a cliff facing the ocean.

The tallest column, ten metres in height, is highlighted in 23-carat gold to reflect the message with the setting sun on the day of the Winter Solstice.

The sequence is laid out around the circumference of an ellipse alluding to the trajectories of the planets moving around the sun. It is a vision of time and space and the interconnectedness of humanity.

The Fibonacci sequence is demonstrated both in terms of height and spacing.
Extracted and carved in Turkey, the 420 tons of basalt were loaded onto a dedicated ship and transported 4,400 kilometres (2,735 miles) to Ibiza, Spain.

The columns are mounted on basalt bases weighing from 7.2 tons to 12.5 tons. The tallest column weighs 19.5 tons.

Construction was completed in one week.
