Entasis
Transforming the classical principle into a dynamic machine, Entasis produces an array of forms in a constant state of transformation. This kinetic installation creates an evolving threshold between a pair of nested figures that reconfigure through convex and concave relationships. Acting as a spatial valve, the piece cycles through a spectrum of spatial combinations and degrees of aperture; closed to open, opaque to transparent, and solid to diffuse. As a kinetic sculptural form, Entasis amplifies the theatrical potential of the classical principle and utilizes its deformation as a determinant for architectural behavior. As such, the parameters of the form's operation were calibrated to allow for occupation and passage.
