The shape of this luminous sculpture derives from the oloid, a three dimensional figure discovered by the scientist and mathematician Paul Schatz. The oloid’s form is conceived around two congruent circles, placed perpendicular to one another and with the centre of each intersected by the circumference of the other. Homage to P. Schatz references this geometrical discovery but exaggerates the form by elongating it, as if the work were pushing itself apart from within. A translucent skin that refracts light into its spectral colours adds another layer of visual ambiguity.
