Koancut (Rosewood)


20 x 12.5 cm


Private Collections.

A solid cone cut into elliptical sections. Each section pivots around the next one so that the whole cone is articulated on elliptical lines. This is particularly interesting because the formal geometrical shape metamorphoses into a very sensual organic succession of shapes.

Lijn also made these cones in pine and then in lignum vitae which was interesting because as in the rosewood the grain changed in the cross section.

Koancuts are interactive sculptures. They invite the public to play with them and react with unexpected transformation.
