Pluriform is an installation with a multitude of shapes and appearances. As the viewer interacts with the work, these facets are revealed and dispersed. Using repetition and materials that have an inherent ability to create movement, this work is an ongoing spatial experiment where fundamental elements such as line, form and space intertwine.
Pluriform stems from an interest in the viewers relationship to the spatial world they experience. As Architect Jun Aoki says, “When most people encounter architecture from within, they feel it rather than seeing it.” I am interested in this idea and how it seems to suggest a gap between what is experienced and what is perceived when encountering a physical space. Pluriform aims to occupy this gap. It may be true to say that this installation is not purely sculptural form, nor a series of fluctuating lines, not solid, nor ephemeral. Pluriform is a string of transitions in space.
