‘Chrysalis’ is a folly which conveys the theme of transition; from one stage of life to another.

In plan, the radial arrangement of rotating frames is analogous to a clock-face; marking the passage of time & tracing a fluid form which gently envelopes the viewer.

The incremental increase in the size of the frames symbolises growth. The variation in size is most apparent at the spiral’s end points, where the smallest and largest frames are offset, but subtly meet to signify a repeating cycle.

Delicate fabric ribbons are then woven between the frames to suggest the boundaries of a spatial envelope, displaying artwork which intensifies the central notion of “transition”
