Beta II- LYNFabrikken "Box" Gallery, Aarhus, Denmark Menu Next
The Beta II installation for the BOX window gallery comprises several metres of continuous, hand-pleated paper, which appear as writhing, fluid forms tracing the movement of line through space. Many hundreds of individual folds change the property of the paper, giving it rigidity, yet allowing it flex and bend within certain limits, giving the impression of smooth surfaces from what is in fact a compound curve achieved using only straight edges. Additionally, the piece features a specially designed carpet backdrop, which has been printed with a photograph depicting the deformation of a flat surface, onto which was projected a grid of parallel lines. The desired effect is to produce a three-dimensional effect, while also evoking the feeling of movement evident in the sculptural element.
