Charybdis, William Pye’s Vortex Water Sculpture.

I stumbled across this stunning work of art: Charybdis, by British artist William Pye. Apparently the water level rises and falls over a regular period and the steps allow the visitor to see the vortex from above as well. As the excellent video below mentions, the choice of clear acrylic causes this to seem like self-contained block of writhing water.
