Gormley sculpture for Liffey inspired by Weaire-Phelan structure

The Dublin Docklands have recently announced a giant sculptural commission for the Liffey by Anthony Gormley inspired by the bubble-matrix structure discovered by physicist and SEED salon habitué Professor Denis Weaire with Robert Phelan. This structure is the most efficient form of foam yet discovered. More art-science-technology projects are in the pipeline with the Dublin Docklands including a visit by Australian performance artist STELARC in November.
