In order to make forms sturdier,safer and easier to install I have filled them with aerated concrete and inserted the plastic tube in the middle. I intend to hammer a steal rod into the ground and slide the form on top.  It is really important to consider and design installation systems while making forms, as it saves lots of hustle and retro-fitting later.  
When they are ready for permanent installation  I can glue the rod in the form, and concrete it under the ground level.                

This is the first time I am  putting them all together ( on my driveway) and I'm a bit anxious. At the moment it doesn't look the way I have imagined it...

I have given each form a bit more space and it looks much better. I can see the left and right spirals - and I like it. Rhythm is very important for this work. As I circle around it, spirals move with me and I am happy with the effect. I wander what will it look like on the grass. My driveway is similar colours to the sculpture so it blends in rather than stands out. Is that a good thing?

This is a half way point. Unfortunately photo is not the best due to the wet driveway, but I like the movement and tension in the form. It almost becomes Yin without Yang.It also looks like it occupies less than half a circle. Note to self: after the exhibition, I need to play with positioning and rhythm of these forms and see if there is potential for further development.
