Series of 8 mechanised systems, carbon, steel banding, LED's
Thixotropes # 1, # 2, # 5 and # 6: 1.20 m (DIA) x 2.20 m (H)
Thixotropes # 3, # 4, # 7 and # 8: 1.75 m (DIA) x 1.75 m (H)
'Thixotropes' is comprised of a series of eight illuminated mechanised structures, each of them shaped as a composition of intersecting angular and geometric forms that are made of thin tensed steel banding lined with rows of LED's.
The constructions continuously revolve around their own axis thereby materialising the path of the light and dissolving the spinning structures into compositions of aerial cones, spheres and ribbons of warm and cold light while giving life and shape to an immaterial construct.
'Thixotropes' was commissioned by Selfridges London.
October 2011 – January 2012, and was nominated for the Designs of the Year award by the Design Museum London in February 2012.
