Sculptural Gateways for FEET FIRST a large scale street Performance Event, Edinburgh Hogmanay Celebrations, Royal Mile, Jan 1st 2009. 

The west end of the street had Portals with warm colours while the other end had cool colours. The phenomenon of vortices occurs in nature when contrasting forces meet and merge. Similarly the ‘Vortex Portals’ were be curvaceous & bright gateways designed to draw people irresistibly towards the central hub of activity where people, ideas and diverse energies collided at a pivotal point in the seasons, and the cultural calendar of Edinburgh!
