Planeliner
...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 sideelevation 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.
