The three-axis form was investigated as a concise and descriptive spatial object. When the axes are distorted axonometrically, the form takes on a flattened physical presence that results in conflicting implied orientations within a space. Physically, Vertex occupies a space in one way while maintaining a visual multiplicity.
It appears to be simultaneously an “inside” and an “outside,” producing a dynamic visual spark. Through subtle provocation, Vertex subverts preconceptions and space becomes active in a new way.
Vertex was shown as part of the Functional Fiction exhibition at the 2013 NADA New York art fair.
