This project attempts to distort the way one experiences light through concealing and revealing space at different moments. A series of torqued fins comprise a screen. As the viewer moves adjacent to the project, the change in their own spatial perspective of the fins both reveal and conceals different aspects of light and objects on the opposite side.
The fins are created from a series of biased cuts allow for them to torque naturally creating this experience. At key points, the fins are pinched together to structurally reinforce the overall macro geometry. Throughout the project, the fins create a micro geometric form that flows between both sides ensuring a lack of directionality. This two-sidedness to the project allows for the experience to remain continuous as the viewer circulates around the screen. Torqued perspective aspires to be a selective visual experience by which filtering light and space is able to re prioritize one's presuppositions of continuous space.
