Lectern | Unique | 2016 |
Expanded polyethylene foam, Resin, 1300mm x 900mm x 600mm.
The purpose of this piece was to explore pattern as structure. The pattern had to have a direct link to the structure of a lectern and make sense.
The pattern was drawn flat and made of equally spaced, horizontally repeating circles. At the top of the pattern the lines compress preparing for the lectern’s top surface.
The pattern was machined out of a flat sheet of firm but flexible foam and then formed into the three dimensional structure. It was then set with woven fabric and resin.
