Gherpe

Perhaps influenced by my keen interest in marine biology, one summer morning in 1967 I dreamt of a shape half animal, half artificial. Once in my studio I immediately set to work, and built a model with several progressively lengthening strips of coloured sheet fastened across a wooden block with a single screw.
