Hommage to Defiance - full side view-
(Lacquered plywood construction with plexi-glass base -free standing-, 44cm x 47.3cm x 7.5cm, Dirk Marwig 2014)
-This object is based entirely on the "Golden Rectangle". The 'Golden Section' or the 'Divine Section' can be seen clearly if you look at where the red lines intersect. Also notice how the red lines run perfectly parallel and perpendicular to the surface it stands on.
This object could be made a lot larger. Actually, it could be a cool building! -I chose this size because I had the plywood for it available in my studio. The free standing object balances perfectly on top of the the little plexi-glass cube, giving the illusion of defying gravity. But how does it balance in the first place with such unequal weight distribution? hmmm...
‘Hommage to Defiance” is an hommage to basically all kinds of ‘Defiance’. Don’t let “RULES” or “LAWS” get in your way or stop you from expressing what you have to say to the world(not harming others, of course)!
