Conic Fugue (Enigma), public art, Charles O Perry, Perth

Public Art : Conic Fugue (Enigma) sculpture

Sculptor : © Charles O. Perry (18th October, 1929 – 8th February, 2011)

Description : The bright red single-surfaced, single-edged monolith sticks out like a sore thumb against the towering grey QV1 building. The sculpture, by American sculptor Charles O. Perry, twists around itself several times (similar to DNA). To matheticians this sculpture is a Mobius strip.  Usually a strip has two distinct surfaces (one inside, one outside). However, run your eye along an edge of this sculpture and you will discover it has only one surface.

Date Unveiled: 1991

Location: Outside the QV1 Building, Corner St Georges Terrace and Milligan Street, Perth, Western Australia.

Trivia: Another similar sculpture by Charles O. Perry entitled Continuum can be found outside the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, DC, USA,.
