The work looks at the study of matter, protoplasm being the inside active part of any living cell. 

The pebbles and movement simulate the random active cells.

Phil Price lives in Canterbury and has exhibited in group and solo shows throughout Australasia. Protoplasm was his first kinetic  work, initially submitted for a sculpture event in Wellington’s International Festival of the Arts in 2001 and purchased by the Trust soon after. 

Phil is fascinated by scientific discovery and his work walks the line between art and science, drawing on physics for the complex mechanics required of kinetic sculpture. 

The work is simple, yet incredibly complex to make. 

This is the first work by Phil Price acquired for Wellington by the Trust. See Zephyrometer on the Meridian Energy Wind Sculpture Walkway.
