Linear Sculpture - Sculpture in Lines

Spatial curves pass through a 90° angle at the four corners.
the arch of (de boog van) Spijkenisse

Two quarter circle segments are joined in a continuous fashion and meeting with the planes, in which they lie, being perpendicular to each other. The monumental size of the sculpture (its summit is eight meters above the ground) causes the perspective to play games with your perception. The projection of these joined two circle segments theoretically is that of half of a slanted circle: an ellipse. But because one end comes towards you - and the others part distances itself, the sculpture actually envelops the axis of your direction of view. This gives a kind of parabolic effect - accelerating the radius of the perceived curve as it approaches you.
