Cylindrical, conical, azimuthal
Sculpture, 2016

Cylindrical, conical, azimuthal was created as part of an exploration of the topics of mapping and navigation and refers to technical methods of representing and depicting the terrestrial globe. In nautical maritime navigation for example the graphic reproduction of the earth's surface and its axes and latitudes is necessary. A method used for this is the so-called map projection, in which the three-dimensional globe is transferred by cutting and projection patterns on a two-dimensional surface. The resulting intersection lines became the starting point of the sculptural form of Cylindrical, conical, azimuthal, whose size refers to the human body dimension and thus seeks to place the visitor in a direct relation to the work.
