Solid : Dimensions variable, Giclée print on Kappa, latex vinyl

Research output: Practice-Based and Non-textual ResearchArtefact

Abstract

As a part of the MAN A series, the work takes military Dazzle camouflage as a point of departure. Unlike traditional camouflage which operates on the principle of concealment, dazzle camouflage uses complex arrangements of high-contrast, interrupted patterns of geometric shapes intended to confuse the calculation of a ship's range, speed and bearing in an enemy's optical gunnery rangefinder. Solid creates a playful dialogue between machine-readable visual information and the primordial human impulse to recognise human figures in a landscape, motion-captured dance emerges from the patterns. The work pays homage to Melancolia I the engraving by the German Renaissance master Albrecht Dürer depicting tools of geometry and architecture surrounding a figure and rhombohedron know as Dürer's Solid.
