Warp and weave

Now completing the molecular models for the Clay10 project. What has surprised me working with such a supposedly rigid modelling system is just how flexible it becomes as it grows, how its own internal tensions produce twists and bends. Then, once suspended and slowly rotating, this wafer-shaped structure (of illite, above) can sometimes take on the appearance of a sphere. Visually the models are quite camelion-like, shifting as your mind tries to make sense of what it is looking at. I need to explore this more through filming them. I think they could take on another form through the lens.

On twitter at the moment:
