Geometry through projection

Starting with a point, shifting this up one dimension into a line, and then shifting the line into the next dimension by moving it around in space, and you come to the work of Anthony McCall. Here, Line Describing a Cone from 1973, where he projects a line of light and slowly moves it to create a ‘solid light’ cone, something that you can walk into, or cut through. But this is also linking up with the reading I am doing at the moment on the similarities between the five-fold spiral shape of the stonewort spores in the Waterpark, and the forms (vortex) the water takes when flowing down a river. I’m looking forward to working with Gareth on creating 3D animations of the spore shapes that will hopefully capture something of this connectivity. (photo: Henry Graber)
