Screen: sandblasted toughened glass
‘An organic object belonging to a larger whole, the leaf is symbolic of the relationship we share as part of a larger society. We have therefore titled the work Arbor Vitae from the Latin ‘tree of life’.
Our interpretation of lace is a study of the fractal and lace-like pattern of the veins contained within a leaf’s simple form, beautifully reflecting the myriad connections and pathways expressed in the micro and macro views of the natural, urban and industrial environments around us.
The graphic expression of this pattern has been enlarged and projected on to three glass panels to create a triptych screen. Precisely registered and finely etched onto both sides of the panel, the thread-like network of interconnected lines and voids, positive and negative spaces, appear expressed in three dimensions to diffuse the screens’ transparency.’
