Linear Sculpture - Sculpture in Lines

monolinear cloud - stainles steel pipe.
1980 monolinear stainless steel hanging sculpture - L.E.A.O. Monolinear cloud, hanging stainless steel sculpture, 'Nassau School, Christelijke school voor Leao, Ecabo and Kmbo' (now NOVA College Rotterdam, Rotterdam NL.

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.
