The 2017 Terrace Wires artist was Royal Academician Conrad Shawcross.

The artist explored subjects that lie on the borders of geometry and philosophy, physics and metaphysics. In recent years Conrad Shawcross RA had expanded his practice to tackle public spaces, with major works in Dulwich Park (Three Perpetual Chords, 2015), the Royal Academy of Arts courtyard (The Dappled Light of the Sun, 2015) and Chatsworth House (Beyond Limits, 2015).

In 2016, Paradigm, a 14m high monumental work, was unveiled outside the Francis Crick Institute in the heart of King's Cross, London, and a major architectural intervention, The Optic Clock, was unveiled for the Greenwich Peninsula low carbon Energy Centre.

Shawcross' work has been exhibited at leading UK and international arts organisations.
