October 2013 / Tauranga Art Gallery

Tauranga Art Gallery’s atrium is now home to a new work by sculptor Gregor Kregar. Foucault’s Pendulum is a suspended installation made from aluminium combined with recycled neon lights and is named after French physicist Leon Foucault who, in 1851, designed an experimental device to demonstrate the rotation of Earth.
