Carbon Void Alu INFO
Carbon Void Aluminium
Carbon Void Aluminium is a study of material and basic positive and negative geometry. The outer shape is defined by the overlapping segments of two intersecting cubes and fabricated in cast ground coal.
A hollow aluminium cube sits in the centre, its corners trimmed where it breaks through the surface of the coal, allowing us to peer inside through sharply framed apertures. A rich pattern of layered light and shadows play on the inner surfaces.
The Carbon Void series explores the notion of absence as a signifier of function. Made to human scale the works examine through simple geometry our relationship with objects and the architecture of what we create to house and support the human form. Resting on one of its facets the inner void may become functional as a seat or container; placed on another it loses its function and becomes purely sculptural.
