Universal Beat takes inspiration from the pumping mechanics of the heart combined with the drooping nature of fuschia flowers and banana plants. This amalgamation of organ and plant demonstrates Cavan’s thinking and curiosity within hot glass. The live sculpture emerges from the rhythm of glass blowing processes, which themselves echo biological processes and shapes. The glass is formed, working with gravity, and keeping tooling to a minimum.
The installation is an imaginary cyclical system represented by water running through the glass.
