'Stairs' ...

... is what came out of last year's On loom printing. Suspended in the studio this immediate kin of Globe now works as a compass for another sculpture. 

It is a study of how such a threaded body filters, reflects and absorbs light, when it is composed of rectangles, instead of a seamless round shape (see Globe). The white oblongs stepwise decrease in width while increasing hight.

At first Stairs was way to dense. Only after I removed every other thread the spaces between the threads were wide enough to 'fill' with light. Ultimately within the rectangle body of such a sculpture round shapes seem to work better.
