Strange Forms

Program Brief: Strange Form
Date: Spring 2017
Instructor: Nate Hume

Th-is/-ese form/s call for multiple readings. It/they is/are simultaneously one and three. It is one form sheared at a central point while they are three forms aligned along a common face. It is simultaneously a broken sphere container from which the form is free to respond to forces, and a free form constrained by a spherical container. From some vantage points, the surface treatment exposes intentional placement, from others, the for-m’s/-ms’ disjointed nature is accentuated. It/they react/s to gravity as it/they def-ies/y it. Born not out of a direct determinacy, th-is/-ese form/s is/are instead a result of misbehavior in response to external forces.
