The Cascade is a series of coloured arcs that spill down in five rows over the terraces of a water feature, reflecting the irrepressible power, abundance and hope evoked by the idea of flowing water. Australian artist Nola Farman drew inspiration from the dynamic play of light on water when creating this sculpture, which calls to mind shimmering rainbow hues produced as the two elements interact. The brightness of the colours and slim, tumbling form of the arcs stand in contrast to the solid mass and rigid lines of the office tower surroundings.
