JELLY FISH-2 (LIQUID CRYSTAL) 1994

Soft Ice: Cold in the Balance

Irregularly shaped, semi-transparent bulbs cling to a cold, regularly shaped bar of metal.
This is a test study of a development version of "Jelly Fish," the theme of which concerned contrasts and a feel of touch.

Contrasts
Hardness
softness
Form
formlessness
Whole
parts
Reflected light
penetrating light

Package

That which is original

Enduring

Material
time

An element is first defined when set against a contrasting element.
The definition of an entity requires the measuring of the "distance" from its opposite.
Distance in terms of concept and distance in terms of feeling should be measured at the same time. Which is faster, the touch or the thought ?
This architectural work is, after all, a kind of scales.
