THE WIDTH OF A CIRCLE
Concrete, metal, plastic, paper
This Installation consist of three different sculptures, which can be moved and deformed by the audience.The sculptures are based on platonic bodies. Two of these sculptures consist of ribs and flexible connectors. The other consists of triangles of plastic and folded fabric. The spectator is invited to activate the sculpture by pushing a red button, which released the sculpture from the electromagnet and let it drop down. A control panel gives the spectator the chance to use a hoist and hang the sculpture back on the magnet. They take on different shapes continuously when they are dropped or hoisted.
