Suspended kinetic construction
2017 - 20
Dimensions in mm:
ellipsoid form - 200 w x 400 l x 200 d
overall construction - approx.
1000 l x 600 w x 400 d (also variable)
Medium: laser cut clear and digitally printed perspex, gold paint, acrylic spheres (marked with watercolour pencils and graphite), transparent perspex rod, sillicone rubber tube
Current location: artist's studio
Artist’s notes: The ellipsoid encloses a spherical central void. A long clear rod cuts through this void, holding 'in orbit' - almost invisibly - three solid spheres of varying diameter. Suspended in space, above head height, the construction rotates by air currents.
A matrix is "something within or from which something else originates, develops, or takes form".
