An exercise in rotated extrusion and optical illusion, Array 3 seeks to couple the ground plane with the space above, appearing as if caught in the motion of upward propulsion. Drawing its palette from mechanical industry and shapes from traditional instrumentation, the work plays with repeated crystalline elements that are lightly suspended via an elevated grid, effectively lifting its primary volume with shaped apertures allowing for intersections to serve as connections.
Combined with refractive material properties and a diagram that utilises perspective to reshape opacities, the work presents a static, reduced geometric elevation from afar before revealing finer interplays on inspection to provide comment on the inherent dynamism of form.
