equivalencies

This series of work explores light, colour and form by sculpting a moment of inertia.

The mosquito nets act as ethereal anchors for the fixed pulleys which suspend domestic furniture.  The simplest theory of operation for a pulley system assumes that the pulleys and lines are weightless, and that there is no energy loss due to friction.  It is also assumes that the lines do not stretch. With these assumptions, it follows that, in equilibrium, the total force on the pulley must be zero – thus the collective assemblage of the nets harness enough force to suspend a substantial weight.

As “furniture” is the collective term for the movable objects which may support the human body (seating furniture and beds), provide storage, or hold objects on horizontal surfaces above the ground – the images study the contradiction in weight, function and form between the nets and the domestic furniture.
