„Panta rhei – everything flows“ the title of a stone sculpture in front of the headquarter of Karl Franzens University Graz; designed by Klaus Schrefler & Thomas Siegl, realized by Klaus Schrefler in Austrian marble („Sölker Marmor“); tecnical consultant Walter Ackerl.

Art in public space
located in public space in the middle of Graz, right in front of the main building of the Karl Franzens University Graz.

The eternal flow
The work is characterized by two words, which symbolize the eternal flow of life - panta rhei. According to cultural history the shape of the ring seems to emphasize associations to universities as intercultural turntables.
Formally and in terms of content the sculpture refers the cinematographic opus „INTIÑAHUI - In the Eye of the Sun“. The award-winning 3D animation [Idea & director Klaus Schrefler; 3D animation by Thomas Siegl and Martin Schemitsch; Montage by Elmar Ranegger; Soundtrack by ‚Dr. Nachtstrom‘], which was shown on all continents deals with the cycle of life. Klaus Schrefler based this project on rites and myths of ancient Ecuadorian culture – in nine sequenzes and their associated imagery visions are brought to life.
