427 x 396.5 x 305 cm

Stainless steel.

Winning sculpture of the Norwich Triennial Festival Sculpture Competition in 1982.

The brief was to design a sculpture for the inner courtyard of the Norwich Central Library. Lijn played with the idea of layers or leaves as in the pages of a book.

The sculpture is composed of 10 layers each of 3 triangular plates of 3mm thick stainless steel. The plates are held apart by stainless spacers allowing 5 cm between each plate. This gives the sculpture a feeling of openness and light. It also creates interesting optical phenomena.

In 1992, the sculpture was re-sited in a garden in front of the Library of East Anglia University.
