Some words about his Yin Yang Sculpture by its creator Ben Storch

“Heather contacted me in 2020 about making a sculpture for Qii House. I proposed a few different designs and Heather picked ‘Yin Yang’ for the Temple Garden next to the billabong.

I owe the concept for the Yin Yang sculpture to my friend Ciaran, who came up with the idea
of dividing a domed dish to turn in to a sculpture. The form becomes concave and convex from both sides – shielding and receiving, joined by a helical centre.

I think my obsession with rotating, helical forms comes from a desire to engage with the world fluidly. The interplay of forces in wind and water naturally creates rotations and vortices – nature’s way of balancing and unifying differences  – since frontal opposition is a waste of energy.

I like the fact that the Yin Yang aspect is quite subtle, and that people can just see it as a calm form without it having to be anything, and I think it sits happily in its natural environment, not too alien.”
