The Creative Spark
Len Lye's work is highly creative. His sculptures dot the landscape and draw on the energy from the surrounding environment. Many of his works never eventuated, but Lye's 1960's piece called Sun, Land and Sea which would have been the size of a rugby field has been created by Canterbury University. Phd student Alex O'Keefe and engineering department head Shayne Gooch explain how they can create a giant lighting bolt of of seven metres of undulating metal.
