MANIFOLD

The form of the Manifold pieces are derived from the nature of their hanging. In these works the path of two intersecting lengths of stainless steel rod are considered as lines of force which, through their intertwining, establish a stable, symmetrical, three-dimensional structure with a specific centre of gravity. Within their conception and construction, the pieces are considered as a diagram of forces that is manifest through the stainless steel elements and their properties in supporting their own weight from a single point. In doing this the pieces attain an exquisite tension and dynamic equilibrium in their suspension and balancing within the earth’s gravity field.
