Kalle Pruuden (Estonia)
Fern spiral
1999

Spiral is one of the primary structural elements of the whole animate nature, like the golden section. The processes of growing and waning progress according to the spiral geometry, many organic forms resemble spirals and the fern sprouts unfold like watch springs. The logo of the Kütiorg Open Studio is spiral, Kalle Pruuden played around with this image three/dimensionally and set up a huge fern spiral in the southern gate of the Studio. The initial plan was to grow climbers all over the carcass, but this is precisely the spot where white frost slithers down the slope at night and grasps everything that has managed to turn green.
