Firstly, apologies for clicks only just recently. I have been staying with my daughter in Northampton, after she had an operation, but she required very little nursing so instead I transformed her jungle into something resembling a garden.
So, from Northampton, some versions of the Discovery Sculpture (the discovery of DNA), the Sir Francis Crick Memorial, by the artist Lucy Glendinning. I was there early morning, and the sun rose to reflect nicely upon the statues. The sky backgrounds are perfectly natural in these.
The memorial has 2 curved stainless steel structures with 2 life size figures with bold and abandoned postures springing from the 6-metre curved plinths which join the structure seamlessly.
The last version shows the whole of the structure. It was difficult to decide on a leader for these, but no doubt you will express your personal preferences.
The relation of the two forms alters depending on your viewpoint, which I have tried to depict here. It is all about the energy of attraction and repulsion.
Francis Crick was one of the greatest British scientists of the 20th century, born in Northampton, and who became involved in scientific research at Cambridge University where he unlocked the secret of life, the double helix structure of DNA. He later moved to California to study the human brain and consciousness in the field of neuroscience at the Salk Institute, and was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1962 and the Order Of Merit in 1991.
