Linear Sculpture - Sculpture in Lines
This hanging sculpture is my largest monolinear form. The line describes a line in the space of a large hall within a school in Rotterdam IJsselmonde. A circle can be divided in any number of arcs. 360° divided by this number gives the angle between the radii defining the arc. This "monolinear" is constructed from four arcs, each of which would be 90° for a circle. But in this case I made four arcs of 95° each. When you connect those the two ends would overlap - unless you lift the two opposite sides, ninety degrees from the connection point, up. This gives us a spatial shape which projects itself as a lemniscate. On this scale the stainless steel pipe is very flexible and the totality, consisting of four two-dimensional arcs, eases into a totally spatial shape.
