Waterfall Sheffield

Sheffield City Centre. Stainless steel and bronze.

8 metres high.


The work is sited above the River Sheaf  which has now been channelled below ground for most of its run through Sheffield. The work  sits in front of a new business park,

The Digital Campus.

The bronze detailing which runs up almost the entire length of the sculpture depicts aspects of our culture affected by new technologies: hand drawing, libraries, calculating and digital machines, and industries which are declining in Sheffield.
