Artist’s notes: An elongated ellipse encloses a circle and a small ellipse.

The latter two are connected to each other, and the enclosing ellipse, by small disc magnets. These allow the two shapes to be rotated into different positions, creating variable openings in the main plane.

 

In optics, an aperture is a hole or an opening through which light travels.
