Breathing Cone

1968

32 x 21 x 6 cm (turntable 8 x 20 cm – here shown without turntable)

Perspex cone and turntable.

Collection of the Artist.

In Breathing Cone (and in Green Line Cone, 1968) Lijn found that by altering the way she passed light through Perspex, either through the edge or through the sheet, the quality of light changed dramatically. In Breathing Cone the blue area pulsates as the cone spins, slowly, as if the cone were breathing.
