Trois hyperboloïdes de révolution (x2/a2 + y2/b2 - z2/c2 = 1)Collaboration with Guillaume Eckly
Light installation in-situ, project
Steel, glass, fluorescent lamps, electro-mechanical device, 20 x 6 x 5 m
Trois hyperboloïdes de révolution (x2/a2 + y2/b2 - z2/c2 = 1) is a sculpture that comprises geometry, light and movement.
Three lines of light (fluorescent tubes) are arranged diagonally over the three up-and-over doors (similar to a type of garage doors), where each door defines a different plane. The movements described by the device outline three hyperboloids of revolution (translation of a straight line around a non-parallel axis). As for the doors themselves, they are completely transparent. The movement of the entire installation is made possible by a system of counter-weights visible within a fourth, immobile frame.
