Exocentric Spirits - suspended sculpture in aluminium and Lucite.  At the Lift Atrium at the Metal Zone, Swiss sculptor Ralfonso Gschwend's Exocentric Spirits, suspended mobile sculpture creates a splash of movement and colour, the aluminium and lucite rings counterweighted to move in natural air currents, overlapping and creating colour upon colour.  With the natural daylight the sculptures throw coloured shadows on the stonewall and floor below, at nighttime the artificial light enhances these pieces to be viewed from the Podium level above.
