Jet, Johan Paalzow (2016)

Title: Jet
Artist: Johan Paalzow
Year of installation: 2016
Location: The University Hospital, Linköping
Client: Region Östergötland
Idea and performance: The shape of the sculpture resembles a spin, a swirl in constant motion that turns into a powerful wave. The sculpture’s swirl is in two colors, lemon yellow and fudge. The upper part, the actual wave, is made of stainless steel, shimmering to reflect light and motion just like water. The sculpture is located in a steep slope adjacent to the entrance to the hospital emergency room.
