Christopher Lee's large sculpture, Renaissance Turbine, is painted black and made out of steel, glass, copper, and cable. It serves as a source of light for the Hope Street Arcade, located on the north side of the Renaissance Tower. Suspended from the high ceiling by a delicate network of strings, it is a beautiful yet sinister reminder of the threat of violence in the undertow of technological efficiency.
This sculpture has two companion pieces nearby -- Renaissance Weather Station, located in the courtyard shared by FIDM and the Renaissance Tower, and Light Refractor Rings, located near the main entrance arcade of Renaissance Tower.
