The Little Egg Hunt – Spectrum Circle Egg

By Rob and Nick Carter

Rob and Nick Carter are a husband-and-wife artist duo who have been collaborating for over 25 years in London, England. Their work is housed in public and private collections around the world, including the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Frick Collection, Pittsburgh. 

The Carters’ work examines the boundaries between the analogue and the digital, with an overarching goal to reference historical processes and practices and harness new technologies that wouldn’t have been available to artists of the past.  

They have a gallery space, RNat5A, in central London. Their work is housed in the collections of The Mauritshuis, The Hague; The Frans Hals Museum, Haarlem; The Frick, Pittsburgh; The Victoria & Albert Museum, London; The David Roberts Foundation, London; The Städel Museum, Frankfurt; and The Fondation Custodia, Paris, as well as being the only living artists to show a work at the Frick Museum, New York. 


From its nucleus, a single point of origin, emanates a series of concentric circles, each a testament to the ceaseless rhythm of change and evolution. These circles, with their graceful arcs and harmonious spirals, echo the ancient patterns found in nature, where life unfolds in an endless cycle of birth, growth, death, and rebirth. 

The design is a celebration of the interconnectedness of all living beings, symbolizing the interconnectedness of humanity with the natural world. It invites viewers to contemplate the universal journey we all embark upon, from the moment of inception to the inevitable return to the cosmic cycle. 

Through their Spectrum Circle Egg, Rob and Nick Carter invite us to reflect on the beauty and fragility of life, and the enduring power of transformation to shape our existence. It serves as a poignant reminder of our responsibility to nurture and protect the delicate balance of nature, ensuring a legacy of sustainability and harmony for generations to come.
