Azimuth

Steel, paint

1.2m

This sculpture evolved form a series of investigations into negative space and three dimensional drawing exploring spheres. It plays with the material properties of steel in terms of balance and gravity. It apears to defy gravity using the strength of steel to support itself. The steel can be seen to contain three spheres defined by the surrounding steel. It is a minimalist work emphasising the clean lines and form. Azimuth is derived from the Arabic السمت as samt, meaning "a part, or quarter" and is an angular measurement in a spherical coordinate system.
