9 figures, 2022

waxed linen yarn, steel tacks, post-consumer aluminium, dimensions variable

9 figures explores potentials of a material line and repurposed post-consumer waste to delineate serial non-objective forms that gradually develop into an ecology of geometric entities. 

Each figure arises from the unremarkable placement of nine steel tacks distanced from each other without a predetermined form outcome. 

Linen yarn hand-coated with beeswax is used to connect each set of nine points to reveal a unique assembly of irregular polygons. 

Each locus is accentuated by a small disc of industrially painted aluminium, hand cut from post-consumer drink cans. 

9 figures is a temporary site-specific drawing of indeterminacy, seriality, cumulative production and non-objective minimal aesthetic.
