Strutturazione acentrica

Posted in Artworks

After Strutturazione pulsante, the interest of Gianni Colombo focused on works that combined optical and kinetic effects in a more complex, perceptual form.

Strutturazione acentrica is a cylinder encompassing a beehive structure composed of parallel diaphragms on the horizontal axis, which overlap in vertical layers with different inclinations.

If the cylinder rotates quickly, the light passes across the layers, creating an ostensible rhythmic movement of ascent and descent.
