...the transition between plane and line.
The geometric foundation of this sculpture is a simple equation. The combination of a few proportioned elements set together in a consistent system can generate an event of resounding clarity.
The name "Planeliner" refers to the specific geometric progression therein. A series of profiled plates are placed concentrically on top of each other. The plate above the previous is smaller in diameter by a constant percentage, the thickness of the plates remain constant throughout. In side-elevation an exponential curve is generated.
The percentage reduction in diameter which is set at -10 percent (always leaving 90 percent at each level) means the system is infinite. On viewing this sculpture one is experiencing a small section of an endless progression. The event stretches forever towards a plane at the base, and a line at its apex; although theoretically never reaching either.
