Title               Boundaries of Infinity
Design            Norbert Francis Attard (°Malta)
Material          Concrete
Installation      2012
Location          Zeelaan 21, square in front of the town hall

This Maltese artist created a permanent installation on the square in front of the town hall in De Panne, for Beaufort04. The concrete water feature encompasses a vertical, sculptural element based on the Fibonacci sequence and the completed form of the Golden Spiral. Each element of the Fibonacci sequence is the sum of the two previous elements, starting with 0 and 1. This sequence often appears in nature; within the growing patterns of plants and flowers, the procreation process of animals, and the shape of shells. The spiral shape based on the Fibonacci sequence symbolises the perfect form, the infinity of nature, and the enormity of the sea.
