Title: Synthesis 2

Year: 2008

Medium: Crumpled page from book Buckminster Fuller: Designing for Mobility, mesh, plinth, lighting

Description: This is a companion piece to the photographic triptych Synthesis that shows the process whereby the crumpled page shown in this sculpture was torn from the book Buckminster Fuller: Designing for Mobility and shaped into the form presented here. In Synthesis 2 the details of the crumpled paper interact with the printed detailing of the geodesic dome on the printed page, and these in turn interact with the white mesh and its shadows cast onto the crumpled ball and plinth, creating a model of structure and space, light and shadow
